I live 5 minutes away from the Gran Via construction project. If no one's planning on uploading more pics, I'll make the walk and snap some pics this upcoming week.

That tower shouldn't be the one you worry about. There is a far worse one under construction

Don´t worry.

It´ll be in the outskirts of the city, in the west.

It´s something like Eurodisney in Paris.

YOu can visit or not, as you prefer.

Itçll be another face of the city and a big oportunity of busyness.

Relax and don´t suffer ...

the "cheese" tower you are talking about is not under construction, but I can't understand why you hate the design of the "palacio de congresos" so much...

I agree, Greco.

This arquitect´s always very careful with the adjacent buildings.

He´s made the Telefónica H Q and Repsol H. Q.

He´s very good.

I love the third picture where the lines of the two buildings go together.

Looks quite brutalist... I'm not so sure about it. Could look quite wasted in some years already.


What was in its place before? I can't remember... I always had this street in mind as fully historical (is it Gran Via already?).

Chinese investors interested in Madrid to locate a financial complex

A business-driven project has been interested Chinese investors in recent months by land localities Madrid Torrejon de Ardoz and Paracuellos de Jarama, northeast of the capital, had offered to host jointly Eurovegas draft.

Sources of Torrejón de Ardoz City Council have confirmed to Efe that the intermediary company locating in Spain responsible for possible locations visited macroproject land situated between the towns of both towns.

The visit, the sources said, was preceded by a request for information on the topography of the land for sale, as well as communications in the area.

Contact with Chinese investment group intermediaries prior to confirmation occurred Feb. 8 Alcorcón as project headquarters Eurovegas and Torrejón's candidacy and Paracuellos ruled out.

The larger project, which today reports the newspaper El Mundo, would be located in Torrejón and Paracuellos and include investments in the leisure sector, catering and industry, according to the sources, who claim not to have more detailed information on infrastructure or the main figures of the project.

"So far there have been only a request for information, a step that given by other investors interested in the land, but not enough to generate very high expectations, municipal sources added that belie a meeting on demand and confirmed with the group of Chinese businessmen.

From City of Paracuellos de Jarama, a spokesman told Efe that this is a "matter embryonic" around which "there is no obligation" or location "certain" of the land.

He explained that there are many companies that "consistently" interested in land in the municipality as a result of the joint bid that municipalities Paracuellos and Torrejon de Ardoz performed at Las Vegas Sands to host Eurovegas entertainment complex.

Then, these two municipalities Madrid offered a plot of ten million square meters near the airport of Barajas and Torrejon Air Base.

Paracuellos de Jarama, municipal spokesman insisted, is a town very well located and with lots of land, which has led to "contacts" with many business initiatives, "Chinese and non-Chinese."

He said did not know if the local mayor, Fernando Zurita Order, PP, has traveled in recent months to China to observe the Chinese government's support for investment in Madrid.

The Minister of Economy and Finance, Enrique Ossorio, said today that the regional government welcomes the possible implementation of a financial and industrial complex promoted by Chinese investors in the municipalities of Paracuellos de Jarama and Torrejón de Ardoz, northeast of the capital.

"For some time have appeared similar information, let's see if we already seem concrete very well," stated Ossorio following questions from journalists on this project, now advances to the newspaper El Mundo.

According to information released today by the newspaper, citing sources close to the negotiations, China's investment groups would be negotiating with the two councils, who once competed for the implementation of Eurovegas-to build a financial and industrial city which earmarked 18,000 million.

Ossorio explained that there is not surprised that Asian investors "who may be interested in Madrid" because the fiscal policies of the Community generate "confidence" and the elimination of obstacles and red tape "is getting that 70 percent of the foreign investment "is intended to Madrid.

In addition, the Minister has indicated that the law has created integrated development centers (CID)-approved last December-way in which to handle the complex Eurovegas Alcorcon, allows for "other projects Similar "employing this standard.

"We feel very good that there are investors from all over the world interested in Madrid" continued Ossorio, who has indicated he has seen reports in this direction for some time but does not know "personally" the project.

Of the total area of ​​land that the municipalities that had been offered to Las Vegas Sands, 80 percent belong to Paracuellos de Jarama and the remaining 20 percent to Torrejon de Ardoz in an area very close to motorway connections to the capital (M-50, A-2, M-45 and R-2).

It will be great if that project materializes but from experience I would believe when I see it finished. It is a great idea to build some factories - I sincerely hope that the automotive assembly plant will be constructed. Damn, Europe needs industry, it was the source of its wealth and it is now foolishly being ignored. And if Spain really want to overcome the crisis and establish a truly stable and prosperous economy the Spanish government should think on that. Industry and technology must be a priority.

I don´t really like that new building in Gran Via. It´s just another dull grey building that could fix somewhere in the PAUs at the outskirts, but where it has been placed it´s just downgrading Madrid´s most charismatic avenue.
