It held its position as the tallest building in the country until 1934 when the Telephone Palace that stood at 174 feet was completed. During the Communist Regime, Bucharest underwent many construction systemizations that led to the building of the Casa Presei Libere in 1957, therefore making it the tallest highrise at the time at 341 elevation feet high.
