The Brasilia Varig Center is on the 12th floor of one of four 16-story towers joined by a central hall. It boasts high occupancy rates because there is no new office construction in Brasilia's Northern Commercial Sector. The city was created in the 1950s as the seat of Brazil's government, with specific administrative, commercial and residential districts. The center is near Television Tower, Brasilia's tallest structure, with views of the city's airplane shaped layout and the main thoroughfare that divides it into north and south, the Monumental Axis. The main government buildings, including the National Congress, supreme court and presidential office are a few blocks away. Nearby is the central bus station, foreign embassies and major Brazilian and international companies, mainly from service sectors including banking and telecoms. The international airport is 15 minutes away. The center has a coffee bar, parking, and terraces with views across the city.
