When under Alliance control, the district is filled with guardsmen and civilians; having various amenities such as vendors, profession trainers and a mailbox. When the Horde destroys the city, the district remains untouched, but evacuated with a permanent portal to Stormwind City available in its entrance.

World of Warcraft
The Tower of Arathor was a mage tower dedicated to the study of the wizards of the old Arathorian Empire. During Stromgarde's darkest age, the tower and the surrounding area were taken over by the Boulderfist ogres.
When the Knights of the Ebon Blade made their way to Stromgarde Keep in order to resurrect the deceased King Thoras Trollbane, Prince Galen asked them to kill the Witherbark trolls that had settled in the former mage district of the city.
Battle for Azeroth
When Stromgarde was reclaimed and restored, the tower was renovated as well. While no longer a subzone, the tower sits in the exact same spot. Notably, the mage district is the only part of Stromgarde to not be destroyed when the Horde claims the city, and the district's gates are always closed during this time.
