Construction of the skyscraper, which houses the Court of Appeal, began in 1978.

Already in 2002 the building was given to the Kiev Court of Appeal, and in January 2004 the reconstruction of the building started. Under the plan the cost of reconstruction was to be about 20 million hryvnias. In the process of reconstruction the buildings grew up on 6 meters and its height was 127 m.
