Interesting Facts/Records (in own words):
-The Itau Bank clock on the roof is 17 meters tall and 75 meters wide which can be seen 10 miles away. It gives both the time and a temperature reading. Before the famous Itaú Bank clock was inaugurated atop the complex in the middle of the 1970s, other two clocks occupied its place: the first was mantained by Willys and then substituted by one sponsored by Ford.
- First office building built on Avenida Paulista. Its commercial area is considered one of the very first malls in Latin America.
- The building caught fire in 1978.
- In 1998, on its 40th anniversary, the building was restored and modernized.
