The planning commission of the City of Regina in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan has given the green light for the construction of a third Hill Centre Tower.

Construction of the 20-storey office building, worth more than $100m, will begin after receiving the commission's approval.

Rosanne Hill Blaisdell, managing director of Harvard Developments, the company that will build the tower, said the 200,000 sq ft building would be the first "class A" office space developed in Regina in at least 20 years.

"The building has some design cues that tie it visually to the two existing Hill Centre Towers but it also includes new and environmentally friendly aspects,” said Blaisdell.

The new plan also includes a permanent art gallery and a meeting room to accommodate events with up to 80 people.
