Capital Pointe project developers have until the end of Wednesday to appeal the City of Regina’s backfill order to have the crater at 1971 Albert Street topped up.
The deadline was issued two weeks ago, after Fortress Real Developments and Westgate Properties Ltd. were told they had until March 30 to continue construction on the corner of Victoria Avenue and Albert Street, but never did.
As of Tuesday morning, Mayor Michael Fougere said no action has been taken to appeal the order to the province.
Last Friday, RCMP raided the Fortress Real Developments’ office in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
Reports indicate the raid was part of a syndicated mortgage investigation, which is when multiple investors lend money to a developer to build a project.
Fortress Real took over the Capital Pointe project in June 2014.
Editor’s note: Due to a City of Regina administration error, the deadline for Capital Pointe project developers to appeal to the city is April 18, not April 17, as stated in an earlier version of this story.
