  • The beautiful Building Ely is located at Rua da Conceição number 283, in downtown Porto Alegre, very close to the bus station and was designed and built between 1922 and 1923 by the German architect Theo Wiederspahn, to be a shop of the merchant Nicholas Ely who made a fortune in Porto Alegre working in Commerce. Entirely built in masonry and with a beautiful and imposing neo-Renaissance German style, has a constructed area of 8000 square metres distributed over four floors and has over 3000 square meters of facade, decorated with plenty of tall Windows and narrow, adorned with delicate frames, balustrades, domes, ornaments and wrought-iron railings. Ely building is considered a tourist spot and is a cultural heritage of the city, currently houses the central store of the Tumeleiro and the FTEC-College of technology, and despite being well maintained and preserved, in recent years the building has suffered several modifications in your aggressive facade and surroundings, such as the construction of an overpass in front of the building and the installation of lights and banners in your facade.
