It was actually planned and built by the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) Muar Division when former Menteri Besar of Johor Tan Sri Othman Saat was the division’s chief. It was finished constructed and opened in the 1980-ties. The building was initially named as Bangunan UMNO Muar. But when the party division was split into Muar and Pagoh divisions following the new boundary re-delineation of Muar parliament constituency that had created the new Pagoh parliament constituency by the Election Commission of Malaysia (EC), the building was renamed as Bangunan UMNO Muar-Pagoh to indicate the inclusiveness of contribution and the ownership of both divisions in the building.
Initially when the highest building in Muar being opened, it was quite attractive and excitement to the peoples of Muar town. It housed the Bank Bumiputera Malaysia Berhad, a hotel, some commercial shop, an balcony lounge, a snooker center, a computer game center and a bowling alley.
