Been very busy. I will post this for now. The Hotel/Condo project is finally going ahead about 18 months after the initial announcement, although without the condos for now.

It will be a 170+ room Delta Inn right next to the Coast Inn of the North which was built in the mid 1960s as a Delta Inn of the North. About the same number of rooms, at 10 times the price of the original.

The Coast is presently undergoing renovations to rooms. I hope the banquet facilities will be next.

The Delta will face the Civic Plaza complex of Conference Centre (Civic Centre), Library, Two Rivers Gallery and Swimming Pool.

Here is a link to two webcams set up to record the construction of the WIDC building which will be about a 30 metre tall timber framed wood building using CLT materials. There is additional background material to the construction and use of the building.

Does anyone have any new pics/updates of projects going on in town? Has anything new been announced? PG seems to be very busy these days in preparation for the 2015 winter games. It's nice to see the city so alive.

Prince George BC – The Wood Innovation Design Centre has been officially opened.



UNBC President Daniel Weeks, Mayor Shari Green, MLA Shirley Bond, MLA Mike Morris, and Stu Ballantyne of the Canada Winter Games cut the ribbon at the Wood Innovation and Design Centre. The building will be the Broadcast Centre for the 2015 Canada Winter Games. That means national media will be broadcasting from WIDC giving the building national attention.

Prince George – Valemount MLA Shirley Bond says the facility is “So much more than a building” She says it will be a symbol reflecting the forestry roots in Prince George. UNBC President Daniel Weeks says last week the University’s Senate approved new programs that will focus on wood innovation and design. Weeks says the building is already gaining international attention.












The building was completed on time and on budget.

Using wood to this extent can open doors all over the planet.

Hi guys, not sure if anyone is keeping up with this site, but if anyone has any updated photos of the new hotel downtown or the new hotel going up in the Westgate area, could you please post. Also any other notable buildings would be great. I read the council minutes, but I can't always find more info. Thanks.
