The land was considered "brown dirt" when Shoninger bought it and required remediation prior to development. That remediation has not taken place but it could be as easy as adding 36 inches to 48 inches of dirt, which they would probably have to do anyway.
This assumes that it is the same as the land next door at PPD. PPD's property was also brown dirt. I've heard that the bottom floor of the PPD parking deck is useless and requires powered ventilation.
Shoningers land could be better or worse, but since it had NOT been remediated, will probably require a retest. Almont Shipping imported millions of tons of ammonium nitrate which was used by area farmers as fertilizer. It sat in big piles on the property.
The property needs work, and Shoninger didn't do it
