One of the most unique buildings in the Abandoibarra area is the Iberdrola Tower, designed by Cesar Pelli, who conceived it as an urban landmark that complements the image of this area.
At 165 metres high, this tower is the tallest building in northern Spain and has become one of the icons of the new Bilbao. It has a total surface area of 50,000 square metres, all of which are used for offices, distributed over 41 floors.
The tower is designed on a triangular floor plan that gently tapers inwards as it gains height. In its urban insertion, it is accompanied by two 20,000 m2 residential and commercial buildings – designed by the architect Carlos Ferrater – located on either side of the tower and separated from it by gardens.
