Did anyone actually seriously think that it wouldn't eventually be a parking lot once the project was cancelled and the hole was filled?

Province-controlled PCC approved Wascana Park building knowing it 'did not conform' t

Unsurprisingly, these projects have corruption written all over them. Nothing about this on CJME.com of course.

Sorry but IMHO this is not disappointing. The housing market is still overpriced so hopefully this can encourage them to lower their ridiculous prices.

Good on Hawkins calling for the project to be scrapped. I know this will probably just mean Brandt expands their current space but how awesome would it be if this revived talk of 1855 Rose or a similar type of project?

It's nice to hear councillors rallying against a parking lot.

Downtown business owner hopeful for good neighbours in former Capital Pointe hole


Congrats Regina on your upcoming downtown development and a big shout out to mayor Michael Fougere!

The potential buyer of the lot is Royalty Developments. CTV News reached out to Royalty Developments about its plans for the location but did not receive a response. The conditional offer to purchase reveals the potential buyer wants to use the land for "surface grade parking."

The mayor of Regina Michael Fougere said the fact that there is interest in purchasing the property is good news for the city.

Work has started on the St. Chad's restoration (Canterbury Park). They've got an instagram page tracking progress too.

That's going to be an expensive parking lot.

Also, will be owned by Tony Merchant, so even shadier than Fortress!

Actually, the Regina Farmer's Market is held in the Core Ritchie Neighbourhood Centre in the fall and winter months.

This land is too valuable and important and must have something more dynamic built on it. I work downtown and a lot of the success of the market in the summer months is because of the location. Wednesday markets are very popular with office workers. I doubt any of us could go all the way over the railway tracks on our lunch breaks to shop the market. As for the baseball park, I feel it is a waste of land that will sit empty for long periods of time and will not benefit the area very much.

To paraphrase Flegel: "Regina doesn't deserve nice things, so let's not shoot that high."
