Similar to the neighboring Cherry Parkes building, McDonald Smith was built for the wholesale trade that flourished along Pacific Avenue at the end of the 19th and in the early 20th centuries.
E.A. McDonald and F.C. Smith were in the wholesale hay, grain and feed business. Like several of its neighbors, it was later taken over by the Younglove Grocery Company for its operations.
Although the building has been modernized through the years, the university has not officially renovated it yet and only occupies the first floor as administrative offices. The ground floor houses retail and the upper floors are rented out as lofts at this time.
