Harbor View Manor was originally built in 1970 under Section 236 of the National Housing Act to serve a low-income elderly and disabled population. The renovation provided needed capital improvements including new roofs, water supply piping, ventilation systems and central heating. New subsidies were secured before the project’s affordability requirements lapsed, thereby preventing displacement of fragile residents. After renovation, property amenities include a computer lab, beauty salon, exercise room, community room, family gathering area, and an exterior plaza with views of Mt. Rainier, downtown Tacoma, and Commencement Bay. Section 8 vouchers are provided for Harbor View Manor residents.
