Rumours about Harbour Landing unfounded: report
Rumours about cracking and sinking basements in Regina's Harbour Landing subdivision are unfounded, according to an engineering report released Friday.
The 800-page report by engineering firm Stantec found that no property owners or builders have brought forward complaints about damaged basements in Harbour Landing.
Stantec also refutes claims that the soil in the subdivision is salty, saying the soil was tested and, where needed, replaced with clean, compacted material in the early stages of the development.
In a news release, Ken Linnen, principal at Stantec's Regina office, said Harbour Landing has been built to a "very high engineering standard."
Stantec also investigated claims of loud noise from aircraft in Harbour Landing. The firm says the subdivision, which is located within a few kilometres of the Regina airport, is not directly under the flight path of airplanes. The report found there is less aircraft noise in the area compared to much of Albert Park.
The developer of Harbour Landing, Dundee Developments, commissioned the report to investigate concerns about the quality of the subdivision.
Dundee Developments vice-president Ned Kosteniuk says the company hopes the report "puts all of the unfounded rumours to rest."
