Updates on the Poulsbo CVS, Sonic and more

A veritable construction boom continues in Poulsbo this fall.

So many commercial and residential projects are taking shape across town that it’s hard to keep track of them all. Luckily the city sent out a progress report last week to bring residents up to speed.

Here’s a rundown of where various high profile projects stand, with some links inserted by me:

CVS pharmacy (Hostmark/Hwy 305)


Onsite site civil work is mostly complete and contractors are concentrating on building construction.

Offsite stormwater system work at Hostmark Street and 6th Avenue is under construction and is expected to be completed in the next two or three weeks. There will be limited traffic interruptions associated with this work.

The CVS and fast food restaurant (yet to be announced) were approved in March. The former Northwest Design Center building was torn down to make way.

Sonic Drive-In (Viking/Hwy 305)


Site work slowed due to changes in the site plan that are being made but not yet approved. Work in the city right-of-way will begin shortly. There will be limited traffic interruptions.

The Sonic was approved this spring. Early reports suggested the much-anticipated restaurant could be open by the end of the year. Early 2015 is looking more likely.

Residential developments


Mountain Aire (Noll Road, pictured above) – Offsite sewer work continues. The sewer is now across Noll Road and is working toward the Mountain Aire project. Onsite mass grading is complete and the stormwater pond is nearly complete.

Sommerset (Viking/Vetter area) – Onsite mass grading is complete. Utilities and stormwater pond are under construction.

Vikings Landing (Viking area) – Approximately 80 percent of sitework is complete. Contractors are spreading rock abd working on winterizing the site.

Olympic Crest (Pugh Road/Applewood area) – Onsite grading is nearing completion and contractors are working on utilities and stormwater pond. There will be limited minor traffic interruptions in the area.
