The Poulsbo City Council has approved the last phase of Poulsbo Place at the SE corner of Jensen and 3rd Avenue.
As approved, the lower portion will be mixed-use building with multi-family buildings on the upper portion.
The project includes 4,800 square feet of retail space oriented toward Jensen Way and the existing mixed-use buildings across the street. The mixed-use building will have 29 residential units above below grade parking.
The upper site will have five multi-family buildings, each containing four residential units above structured parking. These buildings will define two main outdoor spaces: the lower retail plaza and the upper community park.
The architecture is meant to evoke aspects of traditional Nordic design (aka Bergen merchant houses). Each frontage is designed to support existing character and to ensure complementary aesthetic to both the previously completed phases.
Residential parking is located below the buildings to minimize the intrusive effects of surface parking on the neighborhood. The project will not decrease the supply of street spaces and will fully meet the parking requirements for the proposal.
Meanwhile, in a decision March 30, the College Marketplace Apartments were approved by the Planning and Economic Development director on 4.65 acres to include 90 residential units, parking, recreational amenities, site landscaping, screening and utilities.
