Prior to the current structure on this site, the Hudson's Bay Company had a three-story brick building built in 1905. That original structure had a floor added in 1926.
Replacing the HBC's previous brick building, the current 1939-built structure was originally two floors. A third floor was added in 1948. In 1956 an addition to the north effectively doubled the structure's size to a substantial 470,000 square feet.
A 2004 proposal to renovate the building had planned to see much of the structure converted to a parkade with renovated commercial space on the south and east sides. Provision would also be made for future residential towers on the southwest and northeast corners fronting Jasper Avenue and 102 Street respectively.
