Building History: The Fleischner-Mayer Building was completed in 1906, designed by noted Portland architect Edgar Lazarus, was built as an office and warehouse relating to the waterfront commerce located just blocks away. As the water gave way to other shipping models, the vitality of the Old Town commercial district sagged and the building stock deteriorated. In the 1920s, the dry goods firm of Fleischner-Mayer Company occupied the building. In the following decade, it served as the Armory Annex and house Field Artillery manual drills. In the 50s and 60s, the building housed Norcrest China Company, a wholesale chinaware importer. In the late 1970's, the interior was renovated and adapted for ground floor restaurant use and upper story offices.
