It’s too cold to walk over there today to confirm, but according to a post on the Regina thread of the Skyscraper website there’s a new sign up at the property on 17 block Hamilton St. where Westland Ventures recently applied for permission to build a temporary surface parking lot. That came after the mixed use Black Building that had provided accommodations for over 40 individuals and families in the downtown area was demolished.
As we know from the Capital Pointe experience, a sign does not a building make. So I don’t know what sort of timeline may be involved. The application for a temporary parking lot was supposed to be for three years. I’m not sure if that’s still the plan, or if in light of concerns about the creation of more surface parking in the downtown, the building will be going ahead in the near future.
Here’s a link to the post, where you’ll find information on what the proposed 12 story building will include and what the architectural design looks like.
