After WWII, the ROC eventually relocated to Taiwan after the PRC took control of the Chinese mainland.
As a major supporter of the ROC, the U.S..Armed Forces and dependents began to be assigned to Taiwan in large numbers.
The old Sugar Building was converted to barracks for servicemen who lived there from the 1950s until around 1972.
It was also used as a traveler's hostel occasionally. In fact, it was referred to as Hostel #1.

Since 1981, the former Sugar Building/Hostel #1 is part of a multi-building complex known as The Taipei Teachers' In-Service Education Center.
