Ground Broken to Transform Dormant Newark Brownfield Site

BSG’s Senior Vice President of Land and Marine Engineering, Andy Raichle, P.E., was on site for a groundbreaking July 31st on a $50 million 350,000-square-foot warehouse in the Ironbound section of Newark. Morris Companies, a Rutherford, N.J.-based developer, is building on the dormant brownfield site, the home of a former Sherwin Williams Co. paint facility at 60 Lister Avenue. BSG is providing a full range of consulting and engineering services for this project, including civil, marine, environmental, survey, construction administration, and grants and funding. The site will also qualify for the state of New Jersey’s Urban Transit Hub Tax Credit program, which offers incentives to companies to develop near major transportation centers. Vital to the economic health of existing cities and suburban centers, Newark has actively been transforming and redeveloping brownfield sites, such as this one.
