Problems with Muncie's Shell building

I understand Muncie's shell building program gave them a leg up on Anderson's redevelopment plans. The Muncie Star Press reports Shell building delayed — again:
"MUNCIE — A year and a half after a ceremonial ground-breaking, Delaware County’s latest shell building — a useful tool in attracting economic development — is still months away from construction.

Officials expressed frustration at the delay and a new expense: $200,000 to remove buried landfill material at the site, a problem that was discovered only recently.

Local officials smiled and posed with ceremonial shovels at the July 31, 2007, groundbreaking for the shell building along Fuson Road on the city’s southwest side.

Terry Murphy, vice president for economic development of the Muncie-Delaware County Economic Development Alliance, was on hand for the groundbreaking. But Murphy also expressed regret that the project has been delayed.

Murphy confirmed reports that the problem with materials buried at the site was discovered “just a couple of weeks ago.”"
