Sometimes the news comes to you.

The Revelstoke Mountaineer office is located across Second Street East from Revelstoke City Hall. While looking out the window this morning we noticed work crews unwrapping the renovation project, revealing the new Second Street entrance.

The side entrance used to be the entrance to the fire hall, which was originally located in city hall. (The tower in the centre of the building is the old hose-drying tower.) The new side entrance windows pay homage to the original garage doors on the fire hall.

We thought we’d post up a photo and get your feedback. What do you think of the new side layout so far? Please comment below.

Here’s a close-up:
