REGINA – After a bit of miscommunication, it turns out a famous Regina landmark sign is not actually for sale.
The Plains Hotel heritage sign and weather tower that once sat atop the Plains Hotel was put up for sale on Kijiji on Saturday, but it sounds like the ad will be removed before the sign is sold.
Prairie Signs was storing the sign and contacted the original owners of Capital Pointe, who said they had no use for the sign anymore and it could be put up for sale.
However, the development had changed hands, and the current owners of Capital Pointe – Fortress Real Developments – said the whole thing was a misunderstanding due to a lack of communication.
Fortress still plans on incorporating the sign into the Capital Pointe Development.
Fortress Real Developments told Global News that they will be in Regina next week to announce a construction start date.
