Kitsap is in line for yet another new Starbucks store.

The Poulsbo planning department recently approved an 8,500-square-foot retail building and 2,700-square-foot car wash on Olhava Way, across from Walmart.

A Starbucks store with drive-thru will occupy about 2,000-square feet of the retail building, according to a 10-year lease agreement recorded with the county last week. Starbucks already has a store in the College Marketplace commercial center, so this could be another case of relocation.

The new Bucklin Hill Starbucks

The Seattle-based coffee giant has been busy in Kitsap lately. Starbucks opened a new Kitsap Way store last year, followed by a new Bucklin Hill location in July. Another Starbucks is under construction on Highway 104 in Kingston. All of the new stores have drive-thrus.

The site plan for the Olhava Way development lists AT&T and Desert Sun Tanning as additional tenants for the retail space. Like Starbucks, Desert Sun has an existing College Marketplace location.

There is already a big wrinkle for the development plans. A large swath of vacant land in College Marketplace, including the two Olhava Way parcels proposed for the retail and car wash buildings, are set to be auctioned in a foreclosure sale in October.
