Project description: 

Torre de Cristal (Glass Tower), with a height of 249.5 meters ranks as the second tallest building in the country after Torre Caja Madrid. In April 2007, its structure surpassed the height of Torre Espacio, for a while becoming the tallest building and structure in Spain. It has been designed by Cesar Pelli.

Torre Caja Madrid, with a height of 250 m and 45 floors, is the tallest of the four buildings in the complex, just 89 cm higher than Torre de Cristal. Designed by Lord Foster, it was first known as Torre Repsol and would have served as headquarters for Repsol YPF, oil and gas company. During the construction of the tower, Repsol decided to change the location of its future headquarters and the financial institution Caja Madrid purchased the building in August 2007.

Torre PWC is a 52-floor and 236 meters (774 feet) tall skyscraper, completed in 2008. It has been designed by Carlos Rubio Carvajal and Enrique Álvarez-Sala Walter.
