The site comprises three buildings (primarily two storeys) and a vacant plot between Rydalmere Street and Empire Street.

The main building was developed by the York Street Flax Spinning Company between 1917 – 1920. The building was requisitioned for storage during the Second World War and subsequently acquired for £22,500 by Ulidia Clothing Company Ltd in June 1946. Ulidia continued to trade from the site until at least the late 1960s.

The building was last occupied by Douglas and Grahame Ltd clothing manufacturers in 2009.

The building was B2 listed in 19 December 2014 (HB26/23/004).
