A busy construction site as ILWU Hall takes shape in downtown core


The work site has been a busy one downtown as the ILWU 505 Hall
continues to take shape

Work continues forward on the new ILWU Hall spanning half a block between First and Second Avenues West at Eight Street, with Foundation work the focus after some slope stabilization work of earlier this year.

In addition to the hosting duties for the ILWU Hall, the near 10,000 square foot project will bring a new three storey commercial development to the downtown core, the first major project in years for that part of the downtown area.

In addition to ILWU Local 505, funding support toward the project has been provided by contributing partners BCMEA, PRPA, and DP World Prince Rupert 

The project which was introduced In April of this year, is progressing towards a 2025 opening.

Members of the union are currently using the basement of a Prince Rupert Boulevard church as their temporary location as the construction work continues.

Some of the past history of the project and more notes on Labour themes and issues in the Northwest can be reviewed here.
