Notes NOTES: The original El Corte Ingles department store dated from 1962. In 1990-94 Torres & Lapenan were commissioned to design a new skin for the original store and its extension around the northern corner. In 1998 MBM was commissioned to design a new commercial building to the south of the store, which El Corte Ingles bought during construction.
