In 10 years, in addition to the Bilbao Exhibition Centre, other projects have radically changed the area: Megapark shopping area, San Vicente towers and Barakaldo botanic gardens.

Yes, but maybe the urban develpment of the surronding area of the BEC Tower has most importance than the tower itself. Urban change in this former industrial zone of Bilbao*, as you can see on the photographs, is incredible.

* Bilbao Exhibition Centre is located in Barakaldo, a 100.000 inhabitants former industrial city on Bilbao Metro Area, known as Gran Bilbao.

The whole development is very nice and futurist, but there is to many concrete on the tower...

i think that building is very ugly and does nothing for the bilbao skyline.

Looks like techno+brutalism. Interesting fusion. Probably not a landmark, but if I were in Bilbao as a tourist, it would be worth taking a picture (though I'd go to the Museo Guggenheim first ).

Interesting building.
I was quite surprised to see it has a height of 100m, I would have guessed about 70m.
