Historical development occurred in Old Town and south of Bucklin Hill Road along Silverdale Way prior to the expanded shopping center development to the north. Bucklin Hill Center, the area around the intersection of Bucklin Hill Road and Silverdale Way, is both a design district at a major intersection and a gateway area into the larger downtown Silverdale area.
An existing Silverdale Village shopping center is located west of Silverdale Way and another smaller center is located on the east side. A higher intensity of office and lodging uses exists in the northeast and southeast quadrants of the Silverdale Way and Bucklin Hill Road intersection.
The district also includes the Silverdale Community Campus area, bounded by Randall Way on the west, Kitsap Mall Boulevard to the north, Silverdale Way on the east and Bucklin Hill Road on the south.
