The building and its curtilage was originally known as "Tennant's Building" but more commonly as "Ajam's Building". In use in 1798 as a storehouse it was subsequently owned by John Osmond in 1814 and has considerable history and associated heritage value. Its proximity to the British Hotel, the Imperial Cold Storage Building and the former United Services Building makes it part of an important group of buildings in in both heritage and architectural terms.
