Construction began on the tower in 1990.
The tower is nicknamed "Torre de David" after David Brillembourg, the tower's investor who died in 1993. During the Venezuelan banking crisis of 1994, government took control of the building. The building lacks elevators, installed electricity, running water, balcony railing, windows, and even walls in many places.
Venezuela's massive housing shortage led to occupation of the building by squatters in October 2007. Residents have jury rigged basic services, with water reaching up to the 22nd floor. The residents live up to the 28th floor, with many bodegas and even an unlicensed dentist also operating in the building. Some residents even have cars, parked in the building's parking garage. 700 families live in the tower.
Its construction began in 1990, however the crisis of 1994 stopped the construction. The complex has 6 buildings, El Atrio (Lobby and conference's room), the Torre A of 190 m. included an heliport, Torre B, Edificio K, Edificio Z, and the parking of 12 stores.
