Seattle architect William P. White made the original design. The Riste Family owned the Del Mar Inn c. 2012.

This thin, four-story inn had a brick facing and two bays. Each bay contained a pair of windows, each pair consisting of a fixed top light and two casements below. All windows had concrete sills. At the level of the fourth floor's windows, geometric, brick ornamentation--transitional between classicism and modern styles-- terminated each bay. The top floor windows were trimmed by blind, segmental arches. Above the arches, a notable cornice extended, supported by three bulky brackets. Above the first story, a belt course bore the compelling inscription: "Unlimited Growth Increases The Divide." By 2012, the Del Mar Inn stood without buildings on either side, its original neighbors having been razed.
