I just looked through this again.
I just wish some of the English cities could take a leaf out of bilbao's book and create some more daring designs.

The tower will have 160m. It has been under construction from well over a year now.

There is a lot of high quality architecture coming out of Bilbao - especially the bridges, which are fantastic.

I think you mean "Puerta Bilbao", its not really in Bilbao, but its in the metropolitan area (in Barakaldo town (the second largest city with 100,000 inh))



There has been some problems, first of all, they present an horrible tower and the major of the city decline to do that in his city, so they had to make a new proposal.



But during they were making the new proposal the company was near the bankrupt and two saving banks had to buy the lands of the project and know these banks say that they will continue if there was a higher density.
So now they are doing the new proposal with higher density (but its suppose that the tower will still going to be 150m high but with new design)

Five proposals for Garellano urbanistic planning (photos of Petxi, P05 and mines)

One of them would be chosen by a jury. Garellano (dark red) its in the Southwest part of the city, near San Mamés stadium (orange), Basque Public University (dark blue), future San Mames Stadium and Basque Public University expansion (in purple and where old stadium is), Basurto Hospital (light red), Main bus station (yellow), Basque television headquarter (green) and not so far from Zorrozaurre plan (light blue).
