"The Hamilton Grand site was never remediated, AFAIK. As a former gas station it would require considerable work and the removal of truckloads of contaminated material. Remediation supposedly took place in the summer of 2010. All we ever saw was hoarding, a mound of dirt and a Bobcat. The hoarding has begun to come apart and the signs have vanished. What was once pitched as a 15-storey build collapsed to ten and then six storeys. The Grand's site had sold a handful of commercial spots and no residential suites the last time I checked."

There's a big pit in there, with the mound of soil slowly melting away with erosion. The signs are gone because they either came down in the heavy wind or someone pushed them inside. They're down in the hole they dug some time ago. The whole fencing thing was pushed in a couple of weekends ago, then on the Monday they fixed it but left the drawings of the building lying inside.
