    The Kavanagh building was commissioned by Corina Kavanagh, a 39-year-old heiress who had the dream of building a luxurious stepped tower 120 meters high that would give her the rents that would allow her to live comfortably the rest of her days and justify the sale of her two stays.

    The Kavanagh was the first porteño skyscraper, contemporary to the construction of Rockefeller Center in New York, whose destination was to be a rental property. It also had the characteristic of being the highest reinforced concrete structure in Latin America. The construction,completedin 1936, after 14 months from its beginning and that marked a record for the time, 110m high to the roof and 120.35m until the completion of the mast, won the same year the Municipal Collective House Award and Facade.

    In 1939 it was distinguished by the American Institute of Architects and for its technicalcharacteristics,it shared the award given by the Society of Engineers of the United States with the Eiffel Tower, the Assuan Dam, the Panama Canal. In 1948 its owner sold the building to banker Henry Roberts.

    On a certain occasion, the architect César Pelli described the Kavanagh Building as the 'only' skyscraper in the Buenos Aires capital, comparable only to the Chrysler Building in New York.

    Since 1999, UNESCO integrated it into the catalog of World Heritage of Modern Architecture and that same year it was declared a Monumento Histórico Nacional. For this reason, its occupants are released from the payment of municipal taxes such as lighting, sweeping and cleaning.
