Montgomery County Pennsylvania Brownfield Redevelopment: Another Project Underway

By Walter H. Hungarter, III, P.E., Vice President – RT Environmental Services, Inc.


 

As manufacturing facility operations contract over time and sites scale back and/or cease operations, environmental liabilities may linger at sites, and need to be addressed prior to sites being redeveloped.  Prior owners and/or operators of a facility or potential new buyers with a desire to redevelop a site into a more economically productive reuse are left with the task of how to manage the environmental liabilities in a manner which is protective of human health and the environment.  These types of sites are considered Brownfield Sites, and Montgomery County Pennsylvania is no stranger to Brownfield sites being redeveloped.   


RT Environmental Services, Inc. (RT) is proud to be involved with a project in Lower Providence Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania which has just begun construction redevelopment in recent months. The property is located near Germantown Pike and Cross Keys Road, and is the location of the former Superior Tube Company manufacturing facility.  The planned site redevelopment includes 12 single family homes (Manors at Brynwood) on a cul-de-sac and 139 townhomes (The Courts at Brynwood) situated around three courtyards, creating the feel of neighborhoods.  The Manors at Brynwood are being developed by Marc Salamone Homes, and construction is currently underway. The Courts at Brynwood are being developed by WB Homes, and construction is planned to begin in the Fall of 2017.
