One of the few buildings in the neighbourhood with an interesting façade. The original occupant of the building was the department store Laurie and McConnal, which moved to this site in 1883, and closed down in 1977. This building is a replacement for an earlier one, which burned in 1903. The area on top was added in 1909 and was originally a bandstand for live music.

Habitat vacated the building in 2007.
