City of Regina issues yet another building permit for Capital Pointe
The City of Regina has issued yet another building permit for the setback-plagued Capital Pointe high-rise hotel and condominium project.
The previous building permit for the project expired last week. The project has faced a series of delays since it was announced in September 2010.
A spokesperson for the project told CTV News that the latest delay was due to ground conditions and debris from old buildings buried at the site.
Coun. Bob Hawkins said Monday that the delays are "unconscionable." He is calling for a review of the city's building permit rules.
A pedestrian tunnel walkway has been completed along Victoria Avenue to facilitate future stages of construction. However, fencing continues to block access to the walkway, and the sidewalks around one of the busiest intersections in the city.
