Sound West on Quincy Square is a private mixed-use project located on the north west end of Fourth Street in downtown Bremerton. The project is a renovation of the old Ford dealership, the old Sears building, and the 75 year old Roxy Theater. This development is a repurposing of two old commercial buildings into a mixed-use property with 27 apartments (B Flats), 191 public self storage units (Simple Safe Storage), 3,000 sq ft of storefront retail (Axe & Arrow) and 53 parking stalls. In addition to the mixed-use conversion, the Roxy Theater was revitalized along with the marquee and blade sign and will show independent films, live shows and act as community theater for the public. Conveniently located in downtown Bremerton with close proximity to local restaurants, the ferry terminal to downtown Seattle, and the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.
In addition to the private, mixed-use development by SWG, the City of Bremerton has plans for a public square project coined Quincy Square. The public square is named after 27-time Grammy award winner, Quincy Jones. Quincy, who found his love for music while growing up as a kid in Bremerton (see him talk about how he found his love for music on the Stephen Colbert show here – about 3:00 in) is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and is considered one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 20th century. The City of Bremerton has obtained Community Development Block Grant funding and funding from the State of Washington Legislature for the Quincy Square street project. This public project breathes new life into 4th Street and will be an inspiration to our area youth and a catalyst in attracting art and music talent to the City.
