A tentative offer to purchase the Capital Pointe lot has been accepted by the seller, but the deal still needs to be approved by the Court of Queen’s Bench of Saskatchewan.

The realtor received two offers for the property located at 1971 Albert St. The offer from Royalty Developments Ltd. for $2.2 million, plus the assumption of certain property taxes, was the one accepted.

According to court documents, the sale is conditional on the City of Regina approving the land to be zoned for a parking lot.

In March, the property was listed for $8.5 million but was lowered to $2 million in August with the requirement for any buyer to assume the property taxes associated with the property.
