We’ve seen a few demolitions around Bremerton lately, the latest being the destruction Monday of the old Kitsap Bank along Wheaton Way. 

The branch, built in 1961, was Kitsap Bank’s first outside its Port Orchard headquarters. It has been reduced to rubble, adjacent to the bank’s new location at Wheaton and Sylvan Way.

Coffee drinkers rejoice: the new bank will be connected to a new Starbucks.

The long-deteriorating Wheaton Way corridor is starting to see signs of new life. McDonalds is nearly done with a rebuild at its same location (not far from Kitsap Bank) and the Bremerton Teen Center is just down the street at the site of the old East High School.

The new bank is slated to open Aug. 1.
