I hope this is the right way to show u some of the projects from Bilbao. If not, tell me please.:)

Bilbao Ria 2000

Abandoibarra is the most emblematic of all the projects carried out by BILBAO Ría 2000 in its regeneration of the city of Bilbao. This area at the heart of the city covers 348,500 square metres, and the general public was denied access to it for many years. When the La Ribera promenade was opened over the Evaristo Churruca quays, the people of Bilbao and visitors to the city were able to walk around this area to discover it for the first time.

Abandoibarra is destined to become the nerve centre of the new Bilbao. The city’s remodelling process began in 1998 along the lines of the Master Plan for the area drawn up by César Pelli, Diana Balmori and Eugenio Aguinaga.

In the Abandoibarra area, the Avenida de Abandoibarra is now open to the public between the Palacio Euskalduna convention centre & concert hall and Uribitarte walkway. The riverside promenade has also been completed with the addition of a children’s play area and the new cybernetic fountain. It provides a large, tree-lined, mainly pedestrian area with broad pavements, a cycle path and three tram stops. The promenade is linked to the Deusto bridge via a spiral stairway and the newly opened Calle Lehendakari Leizaola provides a thoroughfare for vehicles between the avenue and the bridge.

115,714 square metres of the total 348,507 square metres will be areas of greenery.

Bilbao en Construcción! said:
Por fin podemos decir que la Torre Iberdrola ya ha superado la cota cero! Los trabajos de la misma ya son visibles a nivel de calle y ya se pueden apreciar desde todo el contorno de la Plaza Euskadi y zonas cercanas.


Uno de los elementos más visible es el andamiaje que se ha colocado al sur del núcleo, justo donde irá la estructura de acceso al rascacielos desde la futura plaza.

A partir de este punto la obra incrementará su velocidad de manera apreciable llegando a levantar una planta por semana. Este ritmo no será tan elevado en los primeros niveles, por lo que podríamos ver la estructura llegar a cota máxima (165 metros) a finales de año. Solo la fachada acristalada tendrá un coste de unos 25 millones de euros y se irá colocando según la estructura comience a coger altura. Los residenciales de Ferrater, como podeis obsevar, continúan en stand by.
