VALENCIA | Torre de Valencia | 308m | 1010ft | 81 fl | Pro

A new tallest for Spain in wich this baby will be the tallest tower in all Spain. One of my Spanish friend told me that is under construction, but i don't know, she's such a liar and i haven't seen any news about this beautiful tower.. All i know is a propposal..
here's the rendering..

Another great tower of Calatrava

Actually the design for these 3 towers was released way before the one for the Chicago Spire.

this towers are not under construction, not even close!!!. Actually I think they are never going to be built, we "valencianos" have been waiting for them for a long long time!!!

P.D: I wish they construct them!

Two of those towers are even taller (Torre Castellon and Torre Valencia) than the currently under construction in Madrid, "Torre de Cristal and Repsol Tower"

3 towers don't make a real skyline. I think it's overproportioned considering Valencia's other highrises.

I totally agree witht he above post.
These towers, however good and original they are, will simply look like fragile in Valencia's poor (as in, not 'high') skyline. And f it the start of a cluster, what an odd way to start it.

Cuatro Torres Business Area in Madrid looks pretty good with the 4 towers by themselves, so I don't see why these 3 wouldn't.
