But the company building it, Olga Urbana, ran out of funds in 2009, and declared bankruptcy this year.

The unfinished apartments, most of which have been sold, range from €1.6 million  penthouses to first floor €190,990 apartments.

Before filing for bankruptcy, the company was reported to be almost €140 million in debt, out of which €108 million in loans belongs to Sareb, or Spain’s ‘bad bank’.

Following a court decision, the building and the company’s assets are now set to be liquidated, with Sareb looking for potential investors to finish the project.

It is hoped a total of 138 creditors will eventually receive a return of their money.
