The US$30 million building has a total area of 44,000 m2 (470,000 sq ft) and space for shops on the ground floor, offices on the nine floors above and six levels of underground parking – the deepest parking in El Salvador.
The building was financed by a Guatemalan investor, using a financing scheme called "tenant in hand", because they sell the space to investors, then Quality Real Estate is responsible for seeking a tenant for that space, so the constructors of Avante made sure all of their investors a safe return. Salvadorans who have been investors in Guatemala already know the model of Avante.
This building helps the economic growth of the country; due to the low quantity of office buildings in the country the building helps the economic boom of the city.
