One of the developers of Capital Pointe has filed an appeal to keep the project alive. The City of Regina was informed of the appeal in a statement received April 18 from Westgate Properties.

The appeal was filed after the City issued an order on April 3 for the developers to fill a five-storey hole at 1971 Albert St.

No date has been announced for the appeal to be heard.

Construction on Capital Pointe started in October 2015 with plans to build a 27-storey condominium and hotel complex. The project was initially announced in 2009, just three years before the former-standing Plains Hotel was demolished.
