Located on the corner of calle 13 and L, Vedado, was the first skyscrapers and large apartment building in Havana. Completed in 1932 and was owned by the son of  José López Rodríguez [N.A. The famous Pot, who felt  bankrupt and committed suicide in the crisis of 1921, with 11 million pesos in the bank].

It has 10 general and four floors in the tower and was  constructed with steel frame and brick walls. The halls have beautiful terrazzo floors and walls clad to the top with red Moroccan marble. The building, according to Eduardo Luis Rodriguez, has a strong American influence, with the staggering decreasing the upper floors, which were due to an urban New York regulation that required looking ventilation and lighting for the city.

It was built by architect and engineer Ricardo Look Miguel Rosich, who were inspired by the then art deco fashion and followed the guidance of its owner to achieve an image of comfort, cleanliness and luxury.

Lopez Serrano Building is located in Havana

Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.

The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.

The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.

Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.

Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.
