ATLANTA, GA (May 16, 2013) – Brownfields 2013, George Vallone, MBA, CRE was honored at the awards ceremony for his redevelopment project of the Former Maxwell House Plant, Hoboken, New Jersey. The prestigious Phoenix Award honors individuals and groups for outstanding brownfield projects from each of the 10 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regions.
E2PM, consultant for the project, was instrumental in dealing with some of the challenges for the new construction plan with the waterfront park. The project addressed multiple issues from remediating a contaminated site to being redeveloped consistent with the Hoboken Land Use Regulations for the I-1W Zoning district (waterfront mixed use). E2PM performed the preliminary site assessment and site investigation identifying 58 areas in the remediation documents. Over 70,000 tons of TCE impacted soils were remediated from the site. Also, a TCE groundwater plume extended into the Hudson River and it was necessary to perform vapor intrusion studies. E2PM was responsible for gaining all the necessary NJDEP approvals to facilitate the redevelopment and for every task from the initial due diligence through the final construction.May 16, 2013
