King Street was opened in 1804 as part of the urban improvements begun by the Earl of Glencairn in 1765. The buildings along King Street were predominantly businesses and clubs rather than residential properties. This building is one of the older properties on King Street and retains the classical look the street would have had. In the 1970s, a lot of the street was demolished for new retail developments.
