In 2005, the fire caused the destruction of the "Windsor"tower, one of Madrid's most emblematic buildings. Almost 2 years later "El Corte Inglés"bought the company that owned the tower to prepare the construction of the new building, which will be one of Madrid's most modern and avant-garde towers.
This 103,7 meter high landmark building will open in 2011, and will host a 7-store shopping centre, 11 stores for offices and other 4 technical stores, for functional machinery: elevators, air conditioning, etc. For this construction, which started at the beginning of this year, the works are counting on one 21LC550, with 18 tonnes of maximum load, and one 5LC5010, with a maximum load capacity of 5 tonnes.
Gruymsa, with more than 300 cranes, is renting machinery to many top level works, like this "El Corte Inglés"tower, as well as the construction of the Spanish headquarters of Coca-Cola, in Madrid's "Campo de las Naciones"business area.
