MADRID | El Corte Ingles (Windsor) | 101m | 22 fl | Com

Located in AZCA business area, the new tower will replace the old Windsor, which burned in a fire. Foundation work has been completed and the building suppose to rise in the next 21 months up to 104 meters plus spire.

To the left the old tower and right the new one.


Diagram by the newspaper El Pais



New crane installed at the site.



The Grey building located in the right of the picture which is a El Corte Ingles store, will fuse with the bottom part of the new tower which will be an expansion of the store, the top will be left for offices. The grey building is said that it would also receive a make over to match the facade of the new tower.

Due to the unknown causes of the fire in the old tower, the new tower was restricted to the same surface in sq meters. Some people believed the was some corruption going on. (burnt the old tower in purpose so they could build something much higher and more profitable) so it was decided to keep it the same.

It's 104m taller (not 101).

I like this building and I love the screens in the facade! :O

Nice building, but I hate its height and floor count. They wimped out on us by building a 22-story building. I wanted a 30-story building on that site! This proposal is stupid and does not look like the Windsor Tower would be brought back from the grave.
