The ground floor was converted into 10 units ranging from 1,200 to 1,620 square feet of retail, commercial, residential or live-work uses.   The upper floor has 11 residential units, seven of which are one-story flats ranging in size from 680 to 1,200 square feet. Four remaining units are two-story townhomes ranging from 1,200 to 1,500 square feet. The second floor originally housed the 52-room Arlington Hotel.
