The immobile was built by and belonged to the engineer Ion Pâslă, general inspector of the Constanța Harbor, who was part of Anghel Saligny’s team for the design and construction of the Cernavodă bridge (put to use in 1895) and the modern harbor of Constanța. The building includes a semi-basement, a ground floor and upper floor, and on the central shaft  a watchtower that raises above the upper floor is found.
