Torre Emperador is the new name of Torre Espacio, one of the modern skyscrapers that crown the skyline of Madrid, Spain.

Acquired by tycoon Dr. Andrew L. Tan, owner of Emperador Inc., in 2015 for €558 million as a personal investment, the 230-m-high Torre Emperador serves as the headquarters of the proudly Pinoy liquor brand and world’s largest brandy company in Spain.

Torre Emperador is in the Cuatro Torres Business Area along Paseo de la Castellana in Madrid, Spain. The complex was so named because it is home to four of Madrid’s tallest and most iconic skyscrapers, the three others being Torre Cristal, Torre Cepsa, and Torre PwC.

With a leasable area of 60,142 sqm, Torre Emperador has carried out renovations worth €1.5 million last year to adapt services to its clients, and has fit-out floor for co-working spaces. Among the tenants of the tower are the Embassy of the United Kingdom, the Embassy of Canada, the Embassy of Australia, the Spanish Banking Association; and global infrastructure group OHLA, among others.

Aside from Torre Emperador, Dr. Tan also owns Caleido, the fifth tallest building in Spain, with Grupo Villar Mir, and Torre Diagonal in Barcelona.

Emperador Inc., a publicly listed company at the Philippine Stock Exchange, owns Emperador Distillers, Inc., Scotch whisky maker Whyte and Mackay Group, and Bodegas Fundador in Spain.
