They'll probably just cap the site in concrete and not decontaminate.

Have to remove tanks though but really not a major issue unless they have basement carparking.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”.
