Torre Picasso is a skyscraper in Madrid, Spain designed by Minoru Yamasaki. From 1988 until 2007 it was the tallest building in Madrid, measuring 515ft and with 43 floors. Torre Picasso is located next to the Pablo Picasso Square, within the commercial complex AZCA along the Paseo de la Castellana.HistoryPlanning and constructionThe Torre Picasso was part of a plan to build a large block of modern buildings in the expansion area of northern Madrid. Construction of this area, better known as AZCA, began in 1970 and in 1975 developer, Unión de Explosivos Río Tinto, S.A., awarded design of the tower to American architect Minoru Yamasaki, in collaboration with Jorge Mir Valls and Rafael Coll Pujol. In 1980, Yamasaki received a license to building the highest office complex of Madrid.Construction began late 1982, and the building opened in December 1988. During this period, construction stalled for a period until new owners Portland Valderrivas S.A. and Inmobiliaria Asón S.A., purchased the incomplete structure and relaunched work in 1985 under the direction of architect Fernando Alas. In 2002, Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas (FCC) regained control of the building through a purchase of Portland Valderrivas. FCC owned the tower until December 2011 when Pontegadea Inmobiliaria, a division of Industria de Diseño Textil, S.A. purchased the structure for €400 million. PER Gestora Inmobiliaria, S.L.manages the building.

  • Unmistakable in the area of AZCA of considerable size and with a splendid view of the city, if you can pass. Located in the financial heart and one of the modern districts of the capital.

  • It's a nice enough looking office building with a restaurant conveniently located in the corporate area of Madrid.

  • One of the best gyms in Madrid. Spacious, comfortable, plenty of machines but not crowed, with clearly separated areas and lots of natural light. The coaches are easy going and fun to work with. A bit pricey but worth it.
  • I'm training in the gym for almost a year, I have not had many problems, but another management we had toward more case of customers... To beginning the treatment is great, then they change with time, I see that the more time that you're there paying, should enhance the prestige as a good customer, but they don't think so, I think!

  • I will Paidsport of Petrer and would like to know if I can go to this gym with the same card since they are the same franchise and it is assumed that if, so?

  • I've been to few gyms. This is fine, machines, many showers, clean and well-maintained facilities, give you a towel every day. Average price and a good service. As a defect that does not make you much attention and planning of training seems little studied. I suppose that if you hire a personal trainer service the thing will be different.
