Subject: Mountain View development near TCE plume
City says project needs TCE liner 
Developers interested in building in area near toxic plume 

By Jon Wiener

September 3, 2004

Despite the site's proximity to carcinogenic chemicals in northeast
Mountain View's ground water and toxics in the air, developers
approached the city council on Tuesday to build a new condominium

The city council responded by approving the project, with the condition
that Palo Alto-based Mozart Development Company install a protective
vapor barrier. 

The site under discussion, 555 Clyde Ave., is a former agricultural site
a few blocks from several toxic ground water plumes. 

Mozart Development applied to the council for permission to create a
unique style of development intended to provide independent-minded
business owners with affordable office space. Its plans include six
office-condominiums at the abandoned lot near the city boundary, where
there is currently a large 55,000-square-foot building that has sat
empty for three years.
