New look for Atlin Terminal

It's a brand new look for the Atlin Terminal as workers
continue to give the signature building of Cow Bay a refresh

Tackling a large outdoor painting project in the midst of one of the wettest summers in history is probably not how workers would want to spend their days, but that seemed to be the fate for contractors hired by the Prince Rupert Port Authority who have been busy over the last few weeks and now are in the final stages of an outdoor refresh of the Atlin Terminal building.

KYE Contracting managed to squeeze a lot of painting into the short window of opportunity earlier this month and the result makes fore a very striking view for those travelling through the Cow Bay area these days, with a nice mix of Blue and Red that allows the building to stand out nicely whether viewed on land for from the harbour.

We contacted Monika Côte, the Manager of Corporate Communications for the PRPA to find out more about the refresh and how it's part of their evolving plans for the waterfront area of the Cow Bay district.

Generally, the Atlin Terminal requires painting every five years, and through our regularly scheduled building maintenance we were able to reflect our re-branding work that was done last year. 

The Atlin Terminal is home to the PRPA office, as well as a number of dynamic businesses, and the most direct way we can support the implementation of the Prince Rupert 2030 Vision is to make sure the properties we own in Cow Bay, and the improvements we make to them, live up to the spirit of that Vision by creating vibrant space. 

The new paint is just one example of how we’re doing that. We’ve made several enhancements to the Cow Bay area in recent years, including a refresh of the Atlin Terminal parking lot, increasing waterfront access with the addition of the Atlin Promenade, and partnering with the City on the development of the Cow Bay Marina.

The painting work is being done by KYE Contracting Ltd. They’ve done a great job in ensuring the work continues despite the weather challenges we’ve faced with this summer, and we’re grateful for their determination to help us freshen up our space.

The Cow Bay area rebranded as the Marine District is one of three key elements for the City of Prince Rupert's Official Community Plan and as one of the partners in development in the City, the Prince Rupert Port Authority is taking steps it seems to ensure that what they can contribute to the concepts outlined and will follow the spirit of the document now working its way through City Council.

As one of the signature buildings in the Marina District, the Atlin Terminal, its boardwalks and park areas continues to evolve as a waterfront centrepiece and gathering area for Prince Rupert and area residents and visitors to the city.
