Located on Avenida Bolivia against the Naval Heroes Walk, it serves as the starting point of the Paseo de la República. The Polish architect Ricardo de Jaxa Malachowski designed the building which was built between 1919 and 1924 during the construction boom in the city of Lima lead by the government of Augusto B. Leguía. It was built for Rimac Insurance Company and consists of departments for residential use as well.
