Stalled Poulsbo apartment project may be moving again

It’s been a few years since we’ve had any news to report on the Edward Rose project, a massive residential development planned for the corner of Highway 305 and Bond Road in Poulsbo.

That changed this Thursday, as the city announced pre-application materials had been filed for the development, which would create 552 apartment units, 160-units of senior housing, a commercial plaza, and 34 acres of landscaping and open space, spread across 57 acres.

Access would be from Bond Road and Highway 305, with a connection to Vetter Road also planned.

A pre-application meeting is scheduled for Oct. 4. The pre-application process allows developers to informally discuss plans with city staff because filing a land use application.

A master plan for Edward Rose was approved in 2011, but the project never broke ground.

Edward Rose & Sons is a development company based in Michigan.

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.
