I visited Benidorm last month. Very nice beautiful beach city surrounded by mountains and the Mediterranean sea. And most of all full of amazing skyscrapers and for a smallish city there were so many !

And I liked this one the best ! It's strikingly tall, tallest in the city, couldn't even fit in the close up pictures... As tacky and as kinda crude it is, it is also very unique in shape and a very bold design... I mean look at that cone at the top ! You just cannot unlike it. Also there are not so many arch forming skyscrapers in the whole world, so it's quite something.

(Pictures taken July 2016, by me)

The mainland (north) side:














The sea (south) side:










Only it looked as if it's still on hold... Is it ? And does anybody know why ? At least it was still very unfinished as you can see in the pictures.

When you see it close by... It was clearly not in any use, I mean it was missing windows (!) and it was totally dark at night time... Such a shame... I bet it would look amazing lit up !

P.S. You can also see those lower windows all boarded up at the north side...

The Spanish economy is getting better so hopefully they open the building soon, and then let's wish for taller building even in Benidorm!

Can't believe there is no one living into the tower. What a disaster !
