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.

The Poulsbo Place II complex also would include 24 independent living apartments and a 4,250 square feet of retail space. A garage under the building would provide 145 parking spaces.

The applicant is David Smith of Central Highland, which developed other portions of the Poulsbo Place master plan area. Rice Fergus Miller is the architect.

A public open house for the project was held in March 2015.

According to the notice of application, the applicant is requesting several amendments to the master plan to accommodate the assisted living facility. The changes require City Council approval.

These include increasing height limitations to allow a 45-foot average elevation for portions of the building, and treating assisted living as a “commercial use” to remain consistent with the land use mix outlined in the master plan.

Comments on the application will be accepted through June 3. See the full notice below for more details and click here to view a set of drawings filed with the city.

A national pet store chain has sniffed out a location in Port Orchard.

The applicant is PacLand, a development firm with offices in Seattle.

The pet store and parking lot would occupy two vacant parcels owned by Seattle-based Port Orchard Retail, LLC.

The property is located across Vallair from Taco Time (see inset image). Customers would access the store from Vallair.

The city issued a mitigated determination of non-significance for the project and will take comments on environmental concerns through Friday. The full notice is posted below.

Petco has stores in Bremerton and Poulsbo.

  • The county also gave a green light for the reconstruction of Harper Pier (pictured above during demolition), a Port of Bremerton project. Valuation: $458,880.
