I am not 'spreading rumours'; simply saying that I would not want to live in a building built on contaminated soil - no matter how well sealed. What are your qualifications for thinking I am being unnecessary cautious?stop spreading rumours, you don't know anything.
They are legally required to make the soil safe as per government regulation. They have disclosed the soil issue in the contracts. The contaminated soil is an issue for the entire area, not just this lot. The zoning has changed from industrial to residential for the area not too long ago, as the required wait time for the contaminated soil to become livable had passed. I believe Sugar beach had the biggest contamination concentration, so if that's safe, so is this.They're not legally required to remove contaminated soil? Do they, at minimum, need to inform buyers (prior to signing) that they're not removing that soil.
Don't worry, all toxins will be assimilated.Yes, there were and are certainly other sites with contaminated soil in Toronto; some remove it all, others seal it in. Market Wharf and Time & Space decided it made them more $$ to seal the site and build above grade parking. 158 Front just opposite T&S excavated to bed-rock (and more) so they have below-ground parking.
