Sound West Launches Project-Specific Opportunity Zone Development Near Seattle

Seattle-based The Sound West Group of companies commenced development of Marina Square, an opportunity zone project project near Seattle, in Bremerton, WA. The three-asset class, mixed-use waterfront development will include multifamily, hospitality and paid parking.

Marina Square is one of the first project-specific qualified opportunity zone projects of its kind in the country.

The project at 232 Washington Ave. will include a 125-room hotel tower by Cambria Hotel, which will feature a waterfront restaurant, bar, fitness center, market and conference center. The unique design will ensure every room includes a view of the water, marina and mountains.

A separate high-end apartment tower will feature 145 urban-living apartment flats, with several community amenities, including a rooftop deck, private clubhouse, business center and lounge. Both towers will sit atop a subterranean, paid-parking garage for 382 parking stalls. Construction is slated to commence this spring, and the project is expected to deliver roughly 18 to 24 months later.
