The building lacks elevators, installed electricity, running water, balcony railing, windows and even walls in many places
It is nicknamed "Torre de David" after David Brillembourg, the tower's main investor who died in 1993
On 22 July 2014, the Venezuelan government launched so-called "Operation Zamora 2014" to evacuate hundreds of families from the tower and relocate them into new homes
Venezuela's massive housing shortage led to occupation of the building by squatters in October 2007. Residents have improvised basic utility services, with water reaching all the way up to the 22nd floor
During the banking crisis of 1994, the government took control of the building and it has not been worked on since
