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.

  • It's a nice enough looking office building with a restaurant conveniently located in the corporate area of Madrid. 
  • I have the luck of work in this building in an of them plants higher and the views are spectacular. In the 90's, was the financial heart of Madrid and Spain. With the construction of the 4 towers, and other corporate constructions has lost some notoriety, but it is still a strategic location for companies.

  • Many skyscrapers are the same, but this, despite the fact that its height is not something remarkable, XVIth is due to its location within the Azca and its beauty. For my most beautiful buildings.

  • 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've been seeing the last month, and think it is a good gym. The free weight area is very wide, and has machines and all types. Indoor cycle room, and two more large size for other classes. It is the less crowded where I have been, at least in the afternoon.

  • As gym, leave much to be desired. And I say that being a low-cost client currently. Old, impractical... And also expensive. And a little mentirosillos. Gave low in September of 2014 and still hope the return of 20 euros you charged for the access card and that, in theory, you return to give you low. A silly detail, but I think are those little things that make the difference. In short, that there are better options and more cheap for the area.

  • Relatively small but well-equipped gym. They offer a wide variety of classes and monitors, in addition to majos, are very well prepared. Recommend avoid out of work hours because it standardizes partners coming from Torre Picasso.

  • This gym is perfectly located to meet the demand for workers in the area, so it tends to collapse at lunch time and workers are saturated. Facilities are quite full, they offer towel, gel, room of musculature and a myriad of classes: Zumba, Yoga, Spinning, Body-Combact, Body-pum...
