The design symbolises a water geyser. It has also become a symbol of the change in the old industrial area of Poblenou known as the "Manchester" of Catalonia. Poblenou is now home to the new hi-tech business area called @22 Barcelona and a popular area for foreigners to live in Barcelona.

Grupo Agbar, a water supply company, occupies the entire top half of the tower, so their employees enjoy the views of the Mediterranean through one of the 4.400 windows. There is no public viewing deck and the building itself is not open to the general public.

Torre Agbar is worth seeing if only from outside.  Especially when it is illuminated in a dazzling array of 4,500 yellow, blue, pink and red lights on the outside. Normally the illuminations are static, but on some occasions, such as New Year's Eve and Christmas the tower has a special light show.
