1528 North Halsted

I do Pilates at a studio at 1528 North Halsted, a 100+-year-old building. The owner of the studio, who is also my trainer, mentioned to me that there are some old bank safes hidden in the walls of her building. Sure enough, she showed me one behind a door in a massage room, and another had been made into a changing room.
A great old building, but I'm wondering if anyone knows the age of the building and some history around the bank? She told me her landlord said there was some kind of Greek mafia outfit in there too, whatever that means...
I'll also be searching, but thought I'd start a discussion, as I thought it was pretty amazing the safes were just sitting there in the wall. I believe the name on the safe was W.H. something (the name of the safe company I suppose).
Have a great weekend!
