The City of Regina issued a legal order to the Capital Pointe project developers on Tuesday to fill the hole on the corner of Victoria Avenue and Albert Street by April 30.
“The order was issued because the property owner failed to comply by March 30, 2018, with the action directed by its engineer, Isherwood Geostructural Engineers, regarding redesign and replacement of the temporary excavation support and recommencement of construction,” wrote the city’s director of development services Louise Folk in a news release.
Under the Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act, the property owner may appeal the order to the Saskatchewan Building and Accessibility Standards Appeal Board of Saskatchewan within 15 days.
While the property owner never did begin building, the city said they did pay the $50,244 in outstanding 2017 property taxes and penalties.
The project has drawn the ire of residents and city councillors alike, with many calling on the city to do something about the stalled construction at the site.
