On drawings it looks like the "bridge" occupies two floors.

It must be the "diamond holder" which will be uninstalled after they fix the "diamond".


Yes, maybe Benidorm is not the most beautiful European city (the southern halve looks a little like some messed parts of São Paulo, Brazil; the northern part looks slightly better) and the tower looks somehow trashy/kitschy (a hotel in Las Vegas?), but its reception can change. They need just to build another tower, preferably glossy cherry, and another one orange/purple/blue close to this one. I'm not kidding, it will look much better in a cluster with the same style but another colour (the adjoining towers can be shorter, but should be a little more bulky).

As one of the ugliest towers currently under construction, this tower is a great fit for one of the ugliest cities on the planet!!!

It isn't an ugly tower, but it doesn't fit in the skyline of this city.

It sure as hell is not the best looking building, but it also is not that bad as people say either. It will iconic for Benidorm, and the height is impressive. With a little bit more luck it could just turn out to be stunning (like that orange tower in Moscow that seems to turn out just fine)

Well they're all flying down from upper Europe for a swim-and-shag; I doubt the visitors of Benidorm will be offended by this architectural error.

Looks to me like a classic case of the client insisting on something atrocious and everybody involved in the project, from architects to subcontractors to operators, needing the contract so bad that no one wants to talk about the ramifications of an aesthetic f**k up
