Poulsbo coworking office will open in 2017

static1-squarespaceA coworking space aimed at serving telecommuters, freelancers and entrepreneurs is slated to open next year in Poulsbo.

Vibe Coworks has leased a 5,300-square-foot space in the top floor of a new commercial building planned on Eighth Avenue, according to a news release.

The building, designed by Rice Fergus Miller, is expected to be completed by Tim Ryan Construction in the fall of 2017.

Poulsbo native Alanna Imbach and her husband, Marcel Imbach, are the creators of Vibe Coworks. They’ll be relocating from New York City to start the business.

“We’d had phenomenal experiences with coworking communities in NYC, and knew the timing was right to bring something like that to Kitsap,” Alanna said in the release.

Vibe Coworks will provide Kitsap residents a flexible alternative to commuting, working from home or working out of coffee shops. The Imbaches believe Seattle-area employers also may be interested purchasing memberships at Vibe for employees who want to live in Kitsap.

The space will feature conference rooms, offices, individual phone/video booths, event space, a balcony, lockers and a coffee shop-style community kitchen, according to the release.

Jimmy John’s planned for new Silverdale building

Jimmy John’s is bringing its “freaky fast” sandwich service to Silverdale.

The restaurant chain was the first tenant confirmed for a 4,200-square-foot commercial building now under construction next to the AMC in Silverdale. 

jjLogoLargeProperty manager Jeff Coombe said the structure should be finished by the end of the year. Jimmy Johns is expected to open in early 2017.

The building will have room for at least one other retail tenant, Coombe said.

Silverdale will be the second Kitsap County franchise location for Jimmy John’s. The same franchisee group opened a shop at the corner of Burwell Street and Park Avenue in Bremerton in 2013.

The future home of Jimmy John’s in Silverdale is being constructed in a parking lot at Clear Creek Office Plaza. Coombe said the existing building in the plaza just underwent a $1 million remodel and has space available for new tenants.

The owner of the plaza property also owns the neighboring AMC parcel. The theater is enjoying an uptick in business after receiving $4 million in improvements, Coombe said.

The Randall Way/Kitsap Mall Boulevard corridor has been hopping with construction this year. 

Newlife church broke ground on a new center at the site of the former Regal cinema in May. A self-storage center is taking shape on the hillside west of Randall.

Kitsap Mall is expanding to make room for a Dick’s Sporting Goods store, set to open this fall.
