The fur trade building was erected in 1911/1912 and got its wild name from the former Leipzig restaurant called "Zum Blauer Hecht", which was first mentioned in 1551. The building sign above the entrance to the arcade, with its blue pike, still bears witness to this today.

The façade of the building is clad in limestone, the pillars of which form capital-like borders in the form of animal heads. The figurative elements refer to the furs traded at the fairs.
