Torre Caja Madrid (Spanish for Caja Madrid Tower) is a skyscraper currently under construction located in the Cuatro Torres Business Area in Madrid, Spain. With a height of 250 m and 45 floors, it will be the tallest of the four buildings in the complex, just 89 cm above the Torre de Cristal.

Designed by Sir Norman Foster, it was first known as Torre Repsol and would have served as headquarters for Repsol YPF oil and gas company. During the construction of the tower, Repsol decided to change the location of its future headquarters and the finantial institution Caja Madrid purchased the building for €815 million in August 2007 .

It is being built by a joint venture of Dragados and Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas (FCC). Its completion is expected in 2008.
