Am I the only one that thinks this tower looks a bit fat? It's ok nonetheless.

The tower looks great and will be a great replacement for the old Windsor building

Closer shot of the glass facade. It is still missing the horizontal glass that goes in top of those spiky metal supports.

I thought more glass would go in top but they are putting solar panels. This tower will be green in more ways than one.

That is a very nice way to integrate solar panels in a building! It looks part of the design.

I've been to many El Corte Ingles all across Spain (and the one in Lisboa tambien). It's unlike any department store I've been to; they are massive, and include just about everything (sporting goods, groceries, etc.) They are beautiful stores, and I wish we had them here in North America.

I have a feeling that I've been to this location... is there a highway right next to it with underground lanes? When did the old tower go? I would have been there sometime last fall.

Nice tower BTW.

El Corte Ingles suppose to open before the holidays, but the office floors won't be ready until spring-summer time next year.

That cladding is just phenomenal and the design is very nice too. 9/10 (10/10 if it were a supertall)
