Prince Rupert Opens Bidding to Rehabilitate CN Heritage Rail Station

Brittany Webster

The Prince Rupert waterfront is on the schedule for a facelift following the Redesign Rupert 2030 Vision presentation and the city is now looking for bids on rehabilitating the CN heritage rail station.

During the presentation last week, the city announced in partnership with Gitxaala a $30 million investment in developing the waterfront to become Rupert's Landing. A press release from the city says rehabilitating the old station is an integral component to development.

The rail station was built in the early 1920s and served as the train passenger terminal for Prince Rupert until the late 1990s. All previous attempts to redevelop the property had failed and the building remains boarded up.

A request for proposals was posted to BC Bid on Tuesday for full engineering and architectual design work on the CN building.

Bidding closes January 24th.
