The Centro Comercial Atlantys will be located in Valdebebas, a new urban development in the north east of the city, next to the Barajas Airport. There are another interesting projects in Valdebebas like the Ciudad de la Justicia (more information in the previous pages) and the Ciudad Deportiva del Real Madrid. But there isn't date of ending of this mall. Probably its construction will be postponed due to the crisis.

Anybody know about the current renovation of the Edificio Espana? The Edificio Espana has been unused since being sold in 2005. On the lower 19 floors of the building is a 306-room hotel.

New renders of the future International Convention Center. (More information of this building in previous page). The renders are taken from the arquitect's webpage: playgrounds m+t







The facade will have thousands of white leds. The leds and these big craters of the facade will made the building look like a moon. This is a night render. (No, the earth won't be build ) :

Obelisco de la Plaza de Castilla. Santiago Calatrava.

The obelisk of Plaza de Castilla has been designed by the valencian architect Santiago Calatrava, author of buildings like the Turning Torso and the Chicago Spire. It is being installed on Plaza de Castilla (where the leaning towers of Puerta de Europa are placed) Yesterday the last piece of the obelisc was installed reaching the height of 92 meters. The obelisk will be covered with 504 bars made of ormolu, which will give the monument a golden appearence. Each bar will have a hidraulic mechanism that will make a soft movement wich will be transmited to the next bar. The objective is to feel that a wave is ascend along its surface.
It will be finished on september of this year.

A video:



Some renders (The base has not design yet):









A update of the works at 2/19/2009 and some more information (in spanish)from es por madrid blog

Ayer se completó en la Plaza de Castilla la instalación del último tramo del fuste del ‘Obelisco de Caja Madrid’, diseñado por Santiago Calatrava y construido por Acciona Infraestructuras. El fuste es la pieza principal del monumento, un mástil vertical formado por un núcleo cilíndrico de dos metros de diámetro, construido con acero de espesores variables desde 80 milímetros en la base hasta 25 mm en la coronación.



En este fuste irán posteriormente ancladas, en la parte exterior, 504 lamas o costillas basculares de bronce dorado de 7,70 m de altura cada una. En el interior del fuste se sitúan los mecanismos de accionamiento, así como una escalera interior que conduce hasta la cúspide del obelisco.



Toda la superficie del Obelisco, formada por estas lamas, estará dotada de un suave movimiento de basculación que se transmite a través de la vinculación existente en los extremos de las costillas, dando lugar a un aparente movimiento de ascensión de una onda a lo largo del fuste.

El Obelisco incorporará además instalaciones eléctricas, de alumbrado, de motorización y de balizamiento. Santiago Calatrava señala que lo más complicado del proyecto ha sido coger la escala de “esta plaza enorme” que, con su “esbelta” columna, quiere convertirse en un monumento significativo de la capital de España.



El calendario anunciado para la instalación del obelisco es el siguiente: una vez instalados todos los tramos del fuste, continuará el montaje de las lamas exteriores que se prolongará hasta el mes de junio. Posteriormente se instalará el sistema hidráulico y, con toda probabilidad, el “Obelisco de Caja Madrid” estará finalizado en septiembre de este año.



Visualmente, el obelisco contará con otro aliciente añadido: cuatro cañones de luz tangenciales a la estructura del monumento y un cañón de 1.000 vatios en la parte superior que iluminarán verticalmente el cielo, sin generar “contaminación visual”.

(Nuestro agradecimiento a Caja Madrid y a Acciona Infraestructuras por las fotos)

^ Interesting. Pity that the fountain was removed though. I always like fountains in the middle of roundabouts.

What is the status of these projects in the current economy? Have any of them been delayed or canceled?

Very daring projects for Madrid. Almost as daring as for Barcelona.

I do not know enough of this project to make a good judgement, but it looks like the urban and architectural mistakes of the '50s en '60s. Le Corbusier would be proud!

The new financial district of the north: Chamartín, has been aproved today.
Works will start in 2011, buildings in 2012, and the quartier will be finished in 12 years
At least 4 of the 20 new skyscrapers will be around 300-350 metres, the area will also host 50.000 inhabitants and 90.000 financial workers.

A bit bigger, the north skyline


And the new dense area around the central park of the north
