The Savoy building on the west end of Baker Street is getting a face lift with the help of Studio 9.  The owners of Shambhala Music Festival Ltd. purchased the building two years ago and have recently completed Nelson’s newest entertainment venue, Bloom Nightclub.   Our team of creative, talented designers, consultants, and contractors is now focusing our efforts on creating this towns preeminent food, entertainment, and accommodation establishment.  The Savoy’s new facade will be a dramatic departure from the previous wood shingle and banana peel stucco look from decades past and will give our busiest street some vibrant new character.

Creston’s Lower Kootenay Band has been running a successful primary school program on their forested lands for years. Enrollment at the Yaqan Nukiy School program has exploded in recent years which has resulted in the need for more classroom and administration space.  This new school designed by Studio 9 is currently under construction and slated for completion in May 2016.
