If you enjoy architecture, in particular Modernism and Art Deco, this is a must-see (if not, you may pass as this will look like a concrete building to you). Not only it was declared a National Historic Monument but it was once a record holder in the entire world (it was once the highest reinforced concrete structure in the world).... More

Such an impressive piece of concrete! For being such a solid form it has delicate angles and fine lines which makes for a lot of personality. At one time this was the tallest building in the city.

The building was top of the line when it was built, but needs a lot of maintenance today. Heard they are working on that, but for now, it looks old and shabby.

the building is a classic that goes back to the time in which the other great buildings were being made. If you are fortunate to live here you do not have an address you just say you live at the Kavanagy building. It is pure style.

we had a group of 11 of us rented the entire 14th floor for a week, 5 couples with their own bedrooms and they even allowed us to put a single in the maid's quarters. It was terrific for the group. Great location and amazing views. Having the common space (and terraces) was perfect for a group of friends. The... More

beautiful architecture, different from the colonial constructions of Buenos Aires... but the best is the view from the top floors. You need to ask permission to go up, as for it on the entrance.

Now this a great building (and it has a story...) The view of the city from the top floors is probably among the most stunning views of the San Martín Park área of the city. You can see our "Big Ben" from here too

Nice rationalistic architecture. It is a post art deco building. Look at the doors and the looby.
