The Athens Stock Exchange first opened in 1876 on the street's north side. Modernistic eight storey-buildings were constructed in most parts of the street while neo-classical buildings still existed. Traffic lights and street lights were introduced. Traffic lights were also introduced at Pireos, Sokratous, Athinas and Aiolou streets.
After the move of the Athens Exchange its former building was used as the venue for the 4th Athens Biennale 2013 "AGORA".
