The Arsenal complex now includes the Arsenal Mall, apartments, condominiums, the Arsenal Center for the Arts, restaurants, a health club, day care center, and office space for a variety of companies, and an expansive park.

In the mid 1980s the Arsenal Park Condos opened with 36 condos in a combination of renovated old buildings and newly constructed brick townhouses designed to blend in with the original Arsenal buildings.
