Liberty Title's restoration has been a long time coming. After the tower was vacated by the city Water Department, and plans were made for expanding the Convention Center, officials wavered on retaining the building.

HRI Properties and Realen Properties, who developed the hotel, retained many original details, including the handsome bronze elevator that ferried patrons to the safety deposit boxes.
