In each of our development projects, Sound West Group strives to find a way to engage the local community, whether it is donating a 1-acre park as we did at Bainbridge Landing or allocating 40 of the 128 single family home lots to Housing Kitsap’s “Self-Help” Program as we did at Summerset.
With a grand vision of revitalizing Fourth Street between Washington & Pacific Avenues in Downtown Bremerton, SWG purchased three old empty commercial buildings and the historic Roxy Theatre in downtown Bremerton with the aim of revitalizing the 1941 local theater.
After a $10+ Million dollar investment, the Roxy Theatre is now back up and running showing film and live shows. In addition, there are 27 new downtown apartments overlooking Fourth Street along with a public self storage facility with 191 storage units. SWG sees this area of downtown as a “funky and hip” location that is ripe for millennials to move into, with the Roxy as a “critical piece” to enliven Fourth Street come alive again. In addition to other potential uses, local community groups will be able to use the theater for events and get togethers. With this private investment came a public investment by the City to revelop Fourth Street into Quincy Square, a public square in the center of downtown where art & culture merge.
