Nice design.
Reminds me of the Calatrava towers in Valencia.

Maybe the climate is different in Spain (and Europe generally) but a project like this would piss a lot of people off if proposed in America. Just because the government can find the money doesn't make it a good idea to use it here.

It just doesn't seem to match the realities of the city in which it's located.

How visible would it be from Recre's stadium? Would be amazing to score a goal against the oldest club in spain and celebrate by looking to the heavens and seeing... a giant tower.

In Spain, these kind of towers are not paid by the government, what they do is let a private constructor build a big hotel, office or residential building close to a big project of infrastructure and that constructor pays part of the infrastructures in exchange, so this project would cost more to the government without that tower. In Spain the city plannings are very rectrictive with tall buildings, if they allow to build skyscrapers everywhere, there would be a lot of buildings like this in any small city, for example, in Madrid they let build 4 towers (Cuatro Torres Bussines Area) and the town hall and the owner of the plot earned almost 100 million euros

The area where Recre´s stadium was built belongs to the same area where this tower has been projected. It´s known as "Ensanche Sur" and it also includes a big shopping center, a cathedral, a convention center, the new AVE Station...

I really like Calatrava's projects, and this one for Huelva seems really good too *__*
I hope it will be done!

See you!

If this were built, it would sure be an outstander amongst the city of Huelva. I don't usually go to Huelva, nor have I ever been there.

*Outstander-A tall tower built in a city whose existing skyscrapers don't exceed at least half the tower's height.

Good info -- thanks. I suspected there were building limitations, but this does seem like quite a leap.

I've heard about some overbuilding in Spain -- is that limited to residential developments, or is it commercial as well?

Beautifull!

I think the fact it is a very small city is even more amazing, but a very good idea to build a tall tower. Think if you were to have the same amount of floor space spread over 2/3 story buildings, it would dramatically change the cities layout, this dramatically changes the city but for little land. This tower is very spanish! Wouldn't look out of place in Barcelona.
