This APB branch, which later became Bank Leumi, was built at the end of the 19th century when people began venturing outside the walls of the Jaffa`s Old City. It belonged to a group of buildings that were constructed near the Old City wall and moat, originally intended to be a residence whose large common space was designed in a style frequently found in other upscale homes in the area. After it became a bank branch, the building was decorated with frescos, marble floors and elegantly crafted carpentry. The preservation works at the site included the refurbishment of the top floor and its facades, as well as the restoration of the front balcony, the stone decorations, and the intricate carpentry works inside the building.

It was transferred to the High Arab Commission in 1946, but was later blown up by members of the Lehi underground organization in January 1948. In 1997, after being abandoned for 50 years, the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality began restoring and renovating the façade. The renovation of the building`s interior was carried out by the Turkish government, which reassumed ownership of the building and plans to open a cultural center there.
