History of 4209 Butler Street

4209 Butler is believed to be constructed sometime between 1873 and 1886. The first renovation of the property occurred before 1910 by its owner, Mr. Spandau. At this point, the 2nd floor was sealed off and the freight elevator was shut down. Sometime later before 1923, the property's ownership changed hands to Mr. Morovitz.

In 1932, the building took on its most well-known form when Isaly's opened its doors selling Klondikes, Chipped Ham, & Skyscraper Cones. Islay's conducted the second remodeling of the building in 1950.

Islay's closed in 1996, and Nova Cafe operated at this location until 2005. The space remained a deli style restaurant known as Pete's Place until 2007. The current owners, Botero Development, purchased the property in 2008 and will complete 4209's third remodel, reopening the 2nd floor as apartments with retail on the first floor.
