By the beginning of 1936, the house was a rooming house.
In November 1952, Russell and Company auctioned the contents of the house.
Shortly afterward, house wreckers demolished the house.
In December 1952, the firm of Boultbee, Sweet and Company was constructing a 27-suite apartment building on the property.
In March 1953, Boultbee, Sweet and Company were advertising rental suites for occupancy on May 1.
The building was called “Gatewood Apartments.”
Through the early 2000s the building still consisted of rental suites.
The building later became a strata complex called Bourbon Court.
