The facility was built in 1962-1963. It was supposed to be a port warehouse for fruit and vegetable preserves. Janusz Pukaczewski was responsible for the design prepared by Fermentation Industry Design Company in Warsaw in Warsaw with A. Urbankowski as its head. Józef Stępkowski MSc was the design engineer. The building was designed as an eight-storey, framed one. It was prefabricated from reinforced concrete. The measurements of the floor plans were 39,9 x 21,3 m. The basic purpose of the warehouse was to store general food cargo. The building was fitted with ramps for trains and trucks, two staircases, two goods lifts and one passenger lift. The elevations (the southern, eastern and western ones) had the distinctive horizontal strips of glazing made of four layers of glass bricks. The strips of glazing were separated with air-supply windows sheltered with small shades in an alternate order. The northern elevation facing Polska Street had a smooth plaster. Its central part was highlighted with a vertical strip of glass bricks, and the small loggias next to them. The three V-shaped pillars which supported the structure’s overhang near the ramp were an interesting architectural element. The main entrance was highlighted by the vertical glazing along the staircase and a small accordion reinforced concrete roof supported by steel lines. The unique attic made of obliquely connected panels was a finishing touch to the building’s structure.
The building was used according to its original purpose until 1988, when the Port of Gdynia Authority became its administrator. Then, the building was insulated (1989) and later on used for storing wool raw material. The building was demolished in 2015, to make new investments in the port area possible.
