Former Harbor House building to be destroyed

The building located at the corner of Johnston St. and Portage Ave. in Sault Ste. Marie will be carefully deconstructed starting October 11th 2023. Any salvageable materials were previously removed. The lot with the building formerly known as the Harbor House was purchased in June 2023 by Famous Property Development LLC. Plans for developing the property are under review. 

“We explored all options for the structure, including renovation. Unfortunately, our assessment revealed far too much damage and significant safety concerns,” said Famous General Manager Scott LaBonte. “We look forward to developing the property in a way that will add value to our community.”
