You are 100% right.

Guys! Many towers do not look so great just b/c they don't fit the surrounding! I don't know if this is b/c some designs are reused but meant for another place or stupid architects make their projects without analysing the place were it will be realized.

Architect should not allow to use his/her design ANYwhere and investor should not be allowed by the city architect to destroy the urban cohesion

Oh my God, what a hideous building! And the apartments are so tiny. I'm surprised it is actually being built, with the collapse of the housing sector, who do they think they are selling the apartments to? What a shame, they could have designed something truly beautiful, but they went for tacky glitz.

Calatrava should have designed the building, for sure it would be something better, and I'm Spanish, but I don't like it, and less with that golden colors, and that weird thing at the top

In Benidorm there are much better buildings than this one for sure, as well as in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Sevilla and Zaragoza, between others...

It looks tacky with the gold cladding & something that would suit Las Vegas more.

Blue cladding looks better so hope they go with the blue.

I don't think this building can destroy the urban cohesion, Benidorm is a vacation centre crowded of highrises of apartments or hotels.

But I'm Spanish and I think it's horrible, and old-fashioned, and ugly

kk Benidorm is like Balneario Camboriu in south Brazil, a crowd of ugly skyscrapers in the front of the see.. in the winter a dead 100.000 inhabitants city... in summer 1 million people ...

Not that dead during the winter. Benidorm is the only Spanish tourist city outside of the Canary Islands with occupancy rates higher than 60% even during the winter.

Beggining of August

Thanks for the photo updates P05, keep them coming.
This will be Benidorm's tallest and Spain's 5th tallest building?

Yes, although there are taller proposals in other cities (a 250m tower on Benidorm). But of course, those proposals are impossible to build as long as Spain remains in depression.

P05 - 'Yes, although there are taller proposals in other cities (a 250m tower on Benidorm). But of course, those proposals are impossible to build as long as Spain remains in depression.'

Indeed it is a shame re the current economic situation, but two years ago Spain had no towers over 200m and soon there will be five! So great for Spain.
