Interesting. Something similar happens over at the Majura Park Offices too, or used to until enough tenants complained. It was gassy, but sewer-y, and seemed to be set off by the sun hitting something at the same time of day.

I have noticed a foul sewer-like stench over near the northen entrance to the woolies building, but not recently.
