The long-running battle over the fate of a half-built apartment building in Falcon Ridge may be finally nearing its end.
A Yukon Supreme Court judge is scheduled to decide Friday what happens to the shell of the building that has pitted a condo corporation against the developer.
Justice Ron Veale halted the construction of the building early last year after he ruled the developer, Brian Little, did not appropriately consult with the condo owners.
Lawyers for both sides were back in court this week to decide what should be built in its place.
The developer has presented two options. The options include what its lawyer, Meagan Lang, is calling “attached four-plexes.”
Veale has already ruled that a combination of four-plex and single-family units would be appropriate for that spot.
The two options would reduce the number of units on the land from 48 in the original apartment building to either 25 or 28.
But the condo board’s lawyer said neither option captures the spirit of the development.
Jim Tucker called the concept of attached four-plexes “wordsmithing.” If you attach four-plexes together, they are no longer four-plexes, he said.
The two sides are also arguing over issues of parking and landscaping.
