Facts

  • The concrete core includes escalators and elevators but also has a few windows illuminated at night with different colors such as pink, green and yellow.
  • Some walls at ground level have an industrial look as they are pinted with blank and yellow stripes.
  • Works were on hold from May 2004 to September 2004 because of the Forum 2004. When this event finished, the building was completed.
  • Work began on the site in October 2003 but construction was interrupted for a six-month period to accommodate the Forum 2004 activities, and is now expected to be completed in April 2005.
  • Building has a similar design to Torre BEC. In both buildings the top floors hang from a structure on the top of a central concrete core.
  • A mobile crane was stationed on the street during construction.
  • The top floors hang from a structure at the top of the building but, during construction, a temporary steel structure was used to support these floors.
  • A 5-floor podium connects this building to Hotel AC Barcelona.
  • The structure that supports the top hanging floors is made with three post-tightened concrete beams built at the same time as the facade curtain wall.
  • In April 2004 all the cranes were removed from the construction site and the temporary stell structure was removed.
