This tower is such a waste of expansive resources! Such ugly things have just a life span of - I would say - 20 years. But this ugly tower maybe will be torn down earlier. But ok, it fits to the cheesy Benidorm-Skyline, so maybe it'll remain forever Sorry Benidorm, that's probably something u have to bear...

I don't think so, since public medical care is now ruled and payed thorugh the regional authorities. Seguridad Social it's just about pensions today.

The building can't be more horrible, by the way

In the last years, Spanish cities are doing excelent projects. CTBA in Madrid, Agbar or Hotel Habitat Sky in Barcelona, or Puerto Triana in Seville... But it seems designers still use Benidorm for puking. Honestly I think the designers made this building joking and being drunk, and then, they presented the building and got elected. The designers must be laughing a lot

And btw, those Dubai projects are crap too (why Dubai memebers come here for bashing Benidorm? Maybe doing that they think we will forget the uglyness of Dubai?). They are just bigger crap, but crap anyway. And I say this so openly about Dubai seeing that people from Dubai was also very sincere about Benidorm.

Why is everybody saying this is so ugly? It looks pretty cool to me. There are ugly towers in Benidorm and right across Europe, but this one has a good form, and the finishes look fairly quality if they are anything like this image.

Hmmm... I expect things like that in Astana or some such places - developing quickly, not having the local comparision basis, not knowing the value of design as yet.

Spain should be more mature architecturally. Not a good project I am afraid.

Its an interesting design, but im not too keen on it! The gold is too overbearing, will it work in Benidorm, or should they just stick to what they know and build a characterless white condo block???
