Prince Rupert Courthouse to receive envelope overhaul

Prince Rupert's historic Courthouse, a fixture at the foot of 2nd Avenue West through these many decades is about to receive a major face lift.

A long desired bit of maintenance, as the Province, through the British Columbia Building Corporation, makes plans for a renovation project that will revitalize the windows and masonry of one of the North Coast's most recognized buildings.

Prince Rupert City Council will set the renovation project into motion tonight, once they give approval to a request for a building permit for the Courthouse building at 100 Market Place. 

The matter should be quick work for City Council, as a report from City Planner Zeno Krekic advises that the proposed project complies with the City's Downtown Design Guidelines.

The full review of the Building Envelope project can be found from the City Council Agenda, page 24.

Once the paperwork is processed, work on the Courthouse is anticipated to start in early April.
