The first three-storey house on this site was built in 1778 for the valet N. S. Kozlov. A year later, the house was purchased by Goff-fourier D. A. Moiseev. In 1779, the house was built on the fourth floor, and in 1858, for the next owner - State Councilor Longinov architect N. P. Grebenka, was built on the fifth floor of the building.

In the 1880s-1900s, the building belonged to the insurance company "Russia". At the same time, the premises in the building were rented by various banks, including the Moscow Merchant Bank, which soon moved to the neighboring building (Nevsky Prospekt, 46). In addition to them, the building at various times housed the Semyonikov library, the store of the Northern Glass-Industrial Society and a confectionery.

In 1907, the building came into the possession of the Siberian Commercial Bank, for which it was completely rebuilt in 1908-1910 by architect Boris Iosifovich Girshovich and with the participation of architect Marian Stanislavovich Lyalevich.

In Soviet times, various institutions and cafes worked in the building.

Since 2003, the building has housed the Grand Palace Boutique Gallery, which houses more than 50 boutiques of leading fashion brands: clothing and footwear, fur and leather goods, jewelry and watches, gifts and accessories, interior items and antiques, household goods and furniture, selective perfumes and cosmetics.
