City Villas planned for East Bremerton

In the next 5-7 years the corner of Wheaton Way and Riddell Road in East Bremerton will become an urban village with a blend of residential, retail and office space.

Nor’West Properties of Kingston is developing its City Villa project that would include 340 homes and 40,000-60,000 square feet of office/retail space on 20 acres. The land is located behind the Goodwill building at the southwest corner of Wheaton and Riddell.

The property would feature single-family homes, brownstone/row houses and three story condominiums, said principal architect Paul Eberharter.

The commercial component would have a few anchor stores surrounded by a mix of smaller businesses. All of the parcels would be sold off to developers, he said.

Nor’west Properties is working with the City of Bremerton to develop a subarea plan for the Wheaton/Riddell district center, which includes the Rite Aid complex on the east side of Wheaton Way.

The Merit Company has recently submitted its application to the city to redevelop that area with nearly 25 acres with 177,000 square feet of retail, 76,000 of commercial and about 4 acres of open space. The project would be phased in over 12 years.

Eberharter hopes to work with those property owners to have a more cohesive feel between the two projects.

“Hopefully we can convince them there might be a better way, but we’re not going to be pushy about it,” he said.

Nor’west Properties is also developing an 18-unit condominiums on Roseway Lane just north of Riddell Road at Wheaton Way.
