The following year the town was laid out and in 1937 the land was plotted by public bid.

Summer houses were built slowly in the sector near the Peninsula de Quetrihué, under strict building standards, where the Bosque de Arrayanes is located.
Later, this area was displaced by the El Cruce borough, that grew by the route to San Carlos de Bariloche (90 km.), San Martín de Los Andes (110 km.) and the crossing point to Chile Antonio Samoré (Ex Puyehue).
