Iberdrola Tower in Bilbao (Basque Country), Spain.
The Iberdrola Tower, or Torre Iberdrola in Spanish (Iberdrola dorrea in Basque) is an office skyscraper in Bilbao, Spain. Its construction started on 19 March 2009 and was officially inaugurated by King Juan Carlos I on 21 February 2012. The tower has a height of 165 metres (541 feet) tall and has 40 floors. The first eight floors of the tower were to hold a hotel by the Spanish hotel chain ABBA, but the project was eventually cancelled. The hotel will be replaced by an auditorium with the capacity of 200 people. The remaining floors will have an office usage. The tower, built as Iberdrola's headquarters, will be the tallest building in the Basque Country and the city of Bilbao.
The tower will be built in Abandoibarra a former industrial zone located next to the river that is being renewed since the early 1990s and where other emblematic projects such as Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and Euskalduna Conference Centre and Concert Hall. There will be two residential buildings designed by Carles Ferrater flanking the skyscraper. The entrance to the tower will be located at the Euskadi Plaza.
