The Jesucristo tower (Jesus Christ), one of the six towers, is expected to be the highest, reaching 172.5 metres in height. In fact, this will put it ahead of the Mapfre Tower and Hotel Arts, which are Barcelona's most impressive skyscrapers thanks to their 154 metres' height. However, this new construction will not reach higher than Montjuic Mountain since, Antoni Gaudí stated upon introducing his plan, 'the work of man can not be higher than God.'
While it is true that the Jesucristo tower will be finished by 2020, the fact is that all the finishing touches will actually complete by 2022. In any case, starting from 2017, the locals and generally, all visitors to the city can begin to contemplate the greatness of these central towers through their skeletal structure.
The technique employed to achieve the 172.5-metre height of the imposing la Sagrada Familia tower involves joining up the prefabricated panels to the interior stainless steel structure. In addition, they are installed in such a way that makes them wind and earthquake resistant. This will ensure that the construction will survive for many decades to come.
To conclude, the construction of the Jesucristo tower is meant to give a new dimension to la Sagrada Familia. This temple is the most visited monument in Spain next to Alhambra in Granada and the Prado Museum. In addition, it promises to enhance the value of homes in the surrounding area and even create a better environment for all.
