Update:

New photos from Paral.lel shows the new blocks nearing completion. As we reported (see below) back in February, the original plans to replace the legendary spot with a skatepark have been scrapped and instead the manual pads are being replaced. Common sense prevails!

We received news today (Feb 20th 2015) that the legendary Barcelona skate spot Paral.lel will not be turned into a skatepark as was feared. Instead, construction (as you can see in the photo) has begun on three new manual pad planters around the 'stage', with presumably more to follow. Big props to ASB/AUSB (and everyone else involved) for their hard work and effort.
