Construction on a controversial plot of land in the Falcon Ridge development has been delayed.

Work that was scheduled to begin May 30 has been put on hold at the request of the city. They have asked the developer, a numbered company owned by Brian Little, to prepare a new drainage plan.

A new timeline will be established in the coming weeks. Previously, it was hoped all work would be completed by September 30.

“It’s a slight delay but we’re happy that the drainage will be done properly and that the city is keeping a close watch to make sure it’s done right,” said Helen Booth, president of the Whitehorse Condo Corporation.

“We’re keeping in contact with both the city and developers council on a regular basis.”

In January a Yukon Supreme Court judge ordered the numbered company to come up with new plans for the development after it began construction without consent of the condo board.

The apartment complex, which had already surpassed $1 million in construction by the time development was halted, will be replaced with four-plexes and single family homes.
