Harris Beach takes a comprehensive, strategic and uniquely tailored approach to brownfield site acquisition, remediation and redevelopment. Whether the issues involve soil concerns, groundwater concerns, asbestos, reporting obligations, site access, the balancing and allocating of remedial costs and potential liabilities, financing, public infrastructure needs, or marketing an economic or community development opportunity, we take pride in our ability to find proven brownfield site solutions for our private and public sector clients.
We blend the New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP), the Environmental Restoration Program site access component, the Brownfield Opportunity Areas (BOA) planning process and often, municipal site acquisition and real property disposition strategies, with public finance incentive opportunities to help private parties and municipalities maximize redevelopment opportunities.
Our Harris Beach attorneys assist the private and public sector with mixed-use, retail, residential, office, community park complex and other redevelopment projects. Through the strategic blending of federal, state and local economic incentive programs spurring investments, Harris Beach can assist with the remediation of contaminated property with safeguards to protect public health, producing aesthetically pleasing redevelopment projects and creating thriving businesses contributing new tax revenue.
