Walden has the experience and expertise needed to guide your organization successfully through the process of entering a proposed site into a Brownfield program and prudently obtaining and utilizing available property development resources. Certain Brownfield sites may be eligible for tax rebates, grant funding, or other incentives that make them attractive as redevelopment sites. Throughout the process, our team of experts will work closely with your stakeholders to identify short-term and long-term goals and ensure that decisions are based on factual, substantiated data.
Unforeseen issues may exist or arise that could impede an organization’s ability to redevelop a site as desired. The Walden team can arm you with the information needed to assess the environmental quality of your property, understand the hazards that may exist on the site and what danger(s) they pose to the health and welfare of neighboring communities, develop remediation strategies, and determine permitting requirements for site (re)development.
