Wow Porto is so much bigger than I thought! I didn't know any cities in Portugal looked like that...

The Ikea ad on the side of that building is my favorite.

Thanks for the pics. There are some nice buildings in this area and it seems they are also constructing new ones. What's the height of the tallest tower in this district?

Do you also have pics of the oldtown? Or can you lead me to a thread with shots of it?

Hi, thanx

Yes i have it They were taken in christmas time. Here you have a link to the thread at the portuguese forum

Downtown (in case of porto, its the same of oldtown ehehehe): http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=562120


ps: portugal have restricted height limits the tallest building in this district is 90m tall, and its residential. the tallest comercial have 85. it's that glassy one on the very noisy photo. the biggest it porto is 170m, though.

eles curtiram largo as fotos vou esperar k o thread caia pras paginas de baixo... e entao por mais. dessa forma eh um pretexto subtil pra puxar o thread pra cima. enkuanto ta na primeira pagina deixo tar a ver como isto dá. de kkr forma o crescimento de posts aki eh sempre lentissimo. eu pus no urban showcase por ser pra fotos proprias. mas o k eh certo eh que o urbanscape and skyline photos tem mais movimento. deveria ter posto la lol. mas so estes comentarios ja valem a pena. eh sempre bom ver a cidade assim gabada de forma tão elevada e sincera.
