  1. Build housing on a flood plain. Contaminated land at that. Brilliant!

  2. If the market conditions were right, those factors could be addressed with a berm and soil decontamination effort. They're leaving the possibilities open however unlikely some may be.

  3. Will it be built on stilts? Parking on the first level, so in case of a Hurricane Hazel the vehicles will be washed away?
