A Bremerton architecture firm, Rice Fergus Miller Architecture & Planning, is renovating the old Sears Annex in downtown Bremerton and are documenting the construction and planning progress on their blog. The above quote is regarding why they chose to that particular building, and why they chose downtown Bremerton. The Sears Annex has stood empty since the early 80's when Sears moved into the Kitsap Mall in Silverdale. As Mike Miller stated for this article regarding the building, "unless somebody is going to move into it, is going to sit empty."
On the company blog, they stated that the focus and goals of the project include:
- Connection to the community
- Support of the way they work and the culture of the firm
