In July 2013 and in January 2014 we present to our readers two articles of the construction process on this complex of buildings, that it is ending in Madrid by the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron Architekten. In July last year the delivery of the first phase was conducted , now fully operational and occupied by the bank employees.
If you come or leave to Madrid by the "A-1", popularly known as the Burgos road, so far the main image of Madrid was 4 towers of Castellana. A new skyline and much before reaching Madrid, now, you will find a new figure formed by the building "La Vela", the tallest building complex that BBVA is developing in Tables, an area just outside Madrid, to centralize its offices.
New forms of work-based technology will facilitate the daily lives of the 6,000 employees of the new headquarters.
The design of the BBVA City is a project by Herzog & de Meuron.
The city of Madrid has a new architectural landmark located in the district of Las Tablas, in the north of the capital. La Vela is an elliptical tower with an equivalent to the Statue of Liberty in New York which has already reached its maximum height (93 m) tall. Soon they will begin the work of glazing on both faces.
