Peel Brothers, a local and regional developer, constructed a multi-phase, mixed-use commercial development including a 5,700-square-foot medical office, 6,000-square-foot commercial office, and 2,000-square-foot banking facility. Peel Brothers incorporated the railroad history of the property into the development and linked it to a walking/bike trail that runs behind the property and extends around Spring Lake (12 miles).
The Spring Lake site was occupied by over 40,000 square feet of dilapidated manufacturing buildings, which required demolition. Since the 1940s, the primary manufacturing operation was electro-plating.
Due to the age of the buildings and the nature of the contamination, certain demolition debris required handling as a hazardous waste.
The Brownfield project was supported by the Village of Spring Lake Brownfield Redevelopment Authority through the completion of various environmental assessment, demolition, abatement, and disposal activities, using a $90,000 MDEQ Brownfield Redevelopment Grant and $239,850 MDEQ Brownfield Redevelopment Loan.
The Village of Spring Lake adopted a Brownfield Plan and obtained approval for an Act 381 Work Plan to capture non-school and school taxes to repay the loan. The Village successfully obtained CDBG Funds to extend a street through the development and completed streetscape improvements. Envirologic assisted the Village with securing the grant and loan; implemented all aspects of the environmental, demolition, and site preparation activities; and coordinated with the developer.
The Village of Spring Lake Brownfield Redevelopment Authority utilized the following brownfield tools and incentives:
