21 Dundas Square by HNR Developments

21 Dundas Square by HNR Developments

21 Dundas Square is being developed by HNR Developments in the retailing and commercial core of downtown Toronto at the corner of Victoria and Dundas. The condo will rise about 40 floors and will be designed by Diamond Schmitt and Page and Steele. This looks like it will be one of the more affordable condo's on the drawing board, we'll find out more when it goes into sales. Right now the current buildings on site are being demolished to get the site ready for construction.

Radioactive Contamination Halts Dundas Square Excavation

Demolition Halted at 21 Dundas Square Due to Radioactive Materials

Well, I reported two days ago, that the demolition work had commenced at Dundas Square on a new condo proposal yet to go into sales by HNR Developments. Now comes word that the demoltion has been halted due to radioactive materials found on site, from a radium dial printing facility that use to be on premises in the 1940's. Radium use to be used in the manufacture of glow in the dark watches. So if you ever had a glow in the dark watch, check your wrist to make sure it's not glowing also. (lol!)
