Construction works lasted 6 years, from year 1972 till year 1978, skyscrapers architect is Janis Vilcinš.

Central building is planned to be a hotel, and the rest 3 buildings are planned to be office-buildings in a 120 degree angle around the central building. You can find more information about "Press House" in book "Preses nams ne mirkli nav rimis" by Eriks Hanbergs, though it's in Latvian.
