The Capital Pointe hole is now filled in downtown Regina

The Capital Pointe saga appears to be nearing an end.

The city of Regina says the remainder of the dirt has been placed in the hole, and a contractor will now be working on nearby sidewalks, street lights and fencing.

The city says that work is set to be complete by mid-October.

The site was once supposed to be a 27-floor condo, but work on the project stopped, which prompted the Building and Accessibility Standards Appeal Board to get the owner at the time, Westgate Properties to either begin building, make the hole safer, or fill it.

Since Westgate did not comply, the city took over the project, and have been filling the hole since June.

The original condominium project was supposed to be finished in 2012.
