Meetings were originally held in a wooden building belonging to a Mr. Ting Hu on River Street. In 1910, members contributed $5,000 for the purchase of the Wong Siu Kin School building at 285 N. Vineyard Street to be used as the Society's first official headquarters. By 1915, the administration of Chan Luke replaced the building, deemed inadequate for the growing membership, with a two-story wooden structure. In 1926, President Kim Ak Ching, who later became president of the American Security Bank, foresaw the need to strengthen the financial structure of the Society. Previously, the majority of Society’s income had been used to care for its elderly members and for worthy communtiy causes. However, during his presidency, a policy was adopted to set aside a fixed amount of money on a monthly basis to establish a building fund. Under this policy, the Society was able to accumulate sufficient funds to finance a new building for its expanding membership. In March 1950, a building committee was formed with Chinn Wa as chairman. The committee located a 10,000 square foot site at 1513 Fort Street Mall, and purchased it for $43,000. On December 10, 1950, the See Dai Doo Society building, which had cost $82,000, was formally opened. The two-story building had a Chinese architectural influence and served a dual function. The first floor consisted of six store spaces and five office spaces that were rented out to provide income for the Society. A large hall that was used for Society functions made up the second floor.
