When Aaron Titlow died in 1923, the original hotel was closed and acquired by Tacoma Parks. A few decades later, it underwent a restoration process in which the top two floors were removed. Ever since 1974, the building has been a part of the community and open to the public.

Most homes in the area were constructed between the 1950s and 70s, but in 2014, Quadrant Homes started developing a small group of quality, modern homes. Homeowner Jerry Frazier bought one of these beautiful brand new homes last year: “I love the [proximity] to the water and views! It is easy to commute to work, yet I feel like I’m on vacation when I arrive home.”
