The birth of the building is attributed to the amaginative work of a Zimbabwean businessman Shingai Mutasa. Construction of the multi-storey complex began in 1998 at an estimated cost of US$27 million but suffered serious bottlenecks due to rapid increases in the cost of building materials some which had to be imported at a time the local currency was on perennial slide against major currency. The building project was funded by a number of foreign businesspeople including a Saudi Prince who is believed to have pumped USD$1 million into the project.
