The Sao Paulo Paulista Financial District Center is on the seventh and eight floors of the 17-storey glass-fronted Joao Salem Tower, next to the Citibank Building and a five-star hotel. This is a triple-A rated building, featuring automated management systems and energy efficient design. Elevators, lighting, heating, air conditioning and water supplies are centrally managed, and the tower is protected by sophisticated detection and alarm systems.

The building is on Paulista Avenue, in a central business district close to the heart of Sao Paulo, surrounded by national and international companies, particularly from the finance sector. The tower block features its own landscaped park and secure car parking. It is 50m from an underground train station and within easy reach of both domestic and international airports.
