POULSBO — After months of construction, the former Voodiez site on Poulsbo’s Front Street has sprouted the newest addition to downtown.

The building that was formerly home to Voodiez Bar and Grill was nearly 100 years old and showing its age before it was torn down in early 2013. With its tear down and construction of a new building, Blue Bay Holdings has taken the site in a whole new direction, converting it from restaurant space, into retail shops.

The new building is not yet finished and owners do not know when its doors will open for business. What is known, however, is what will go into the new structure.

Boomer’s Pet Boutique is slated to move into the main floor, according to officials with Blue Bay Holdings, the property’s owner. Boomer’s is currently located just down the block on Front Street.

Retail, office and possibly restaurant space will occupy the second floor of the building.

The new building will also increase in size — compared to the old structure — by 41 percent.

The main floor spans 2,548 square feet, with the second floor of 1,034 square feet.

The main floor’s anchor retail space is 1,833 square feet. The second floor will house three more retail spaces while the roof will boast a 1,290-square-foot deck with a fireplace and views of waterfront park.
