Janowicz Place is a large and modern office building located in the Business District of Brunanter capital Koningstad. The Janowicz Place was the tallest building in Brunant, at 480 feet (146 meters) high, until being surpassed by The Spire in November 2011 (topped out at 223 meters in February 2013). The building is named after the Franco-Polish engineer who laid out modern Koningstad, Victor Janowicz. It houses several government offices, corporate headquarters and a few embassies, though most of the offices are for sale.


3 Van Horne Avenue used to be the site of a low-rise, six-story office building built in the 1930s. The Central Bank of Brunant wanted to construct a new headquarter on the site (1970s), but as demolition was taking place they backed out over the huge costs involved.

A consortium of companies led by Delta Group put forth another plan for the site in 1981: a 50-story office/administrative building. The city of Koningstad eventually agreed to the plan but rising projected costs led Delta to reduce the height to 40 stories, still projected to be the talles building in the country. Construction of 3 Van Horne Avenue was won by American firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (now known for the Burj Khalifa). The design for the tower was done by architect Art Somerbosch. Construction began in the spring of 1987.
