HARBOR TOWER IS NOW A SMOKE FREE BUILDING INCLUDING ALL APARTMENTS.
Over 40 years ago, there was a vision for the City of Escanaba to provide affordable housing to members of the community. That vision became the Escanaba Harbor Tower.
Harbor Tower, since its grand opening in 1970, has consistently had 100 percent occupancy, with a waiting list. In fact one original resident still resides at Harbor Tower.
Harbor Tower is considered a high performer by the Federal Government’s Housing and Urban Development Program (HUD). Since the early 1990’s, the Public Housing Assessment System has given Escanaba’s Harbor Tower top grades. The high grades are given to the Management and Staff for their top performance and upkeep of the public housing building.
