The Tower of David is a skyscraper located in downtown Caracas, Venezuela. The structure is 195 metres high and consists of two towers and 45 floors. After the devastating economic crisis hit Venezuela in 1994, construction was abandoned until 13 years later, with construction restarting in 2007. Instead of being flooded with office workers, approximately 2,000 families invaded the space to live illegally. The Tower has become a symbol of the city of Caracas.

برج ديفيد هو عبارة عن ناطحة سحاب كائنة في وسط مدينة كاراكاس في فنزويلا. يبلغ ارتفاع البرج 195 متراً ويشمل برجين و45 طابقاً. بعد الأزمة الاقتصادية المدمرة التي شهدتها فنزويلا في العام 1994، تمّ إيقاف عملية البناء إلى أن استؤنفت بعد 13 عاماً، أي في العام 2007. وبدلاً من أن يكتسح العمال المبنى، غزت 2000 عائلة تقريباً مساحات المبنى للإقامة فيه بشكلٍ غير شرعي. بات البرج رمزاً لمدينة كاراكاس.
