Harbor View Manor was built in 1968 and provides 169 apartments to low-income seniors in downtown Tacoma.
A renovation of the 135,000-square-foot building was finished in March, with upgrades to the living and working spaces.
To keep the 14-story building occupied during construction, residential floors were remodeled from the top floor down — each lasting 21 days. The first floor and basement were phased so residents could use community spaces during construction and to minimize disruption to business and maintenance operations.
A new kitchen and dining room, computer lab, staff offices, meeting rooms, lounge and recreational spaces were created. A new grand stair connects the first floor to the basement. The corridors have new finishes, lighting and ventilation.
