IN PHOTOS: A new public beach in East Bremerton?

IMG_9857

Plans are underway to build a 16-unit condo complex on Campbell Way, near Harrison Medical Center. The developers, who want to build it this year, told me they’re excited at the chance to construct along the bluffs of the Port Washington Narrows.

Even if you don’t buy a unit at the to-be-named complex, Bremertonians may still have reason to celebrate: the developers are being asked by the city to put in a trail to the waterfront for public access.

To my knowledge, the nearest beach access to that area is Lent Landing and Lions Field.

Here’s some photos of what will be torn down and what it would be replaced with, under plans by iCap Pacific Homes.

  1. I love the idea of providing beach access at this new complex. Also it looks like they plan to use some solar energy for the project. This is great! You are correct, Josh; the nearest beach access is Lent Landing. We have people walking past our place on the beach regularly. They are never loud or obnoxious… just regular people wanting to enjoy a beach walk. Beach frontage is precious and needs to be shared!

  2. Josh, I would definitely use and enjoy such beach access. It is a rare, natural asset that would bring substantial benefit for all ages in the community.
