The construction at the site of the old Plains Hotel on Albert and Victoria that some thought would never happen – is happening.
Ground was broken on the Capital Pointe project in October, but project developer Greg Black says workers came up with an immediate challenge which was unexpected.
Black says it is nice to see some activity on the site of the old Plains Hotel after years of delays.
Black says he realizes there is a lot of negativism about this project because of numerous delays, but he feels as if any negativism is fading away as people see progress.
He says it took a while longer to clean out the steel and concrete from the hotel which was underground, but he remains confident the project will be finished in the spring of 2018.
