Rochester City Council Approves a $2.3 Million Brownfield Redevelopment Plan

The Rochester City Council recently approved a $2.3 million brownfield redevelopment plan to help clean up the city’s largest vacant property. SME congratulates the City of Rochester on this endeavor and is ready to support this exciting redevelopment spearheaded by Frank Rewold & Son, Inc. Following the cleanup, plans include developing a 40,000-square-foot, multistory commercial/office building with parking. This building will serve as Rewold's headquarters and will house multiple offices.

SME helped secure brownfield funds to make the project economically viable. Our environmental team is providing brownfield assessment services to help mitigate exposure to soil and groundwater contamination, limit stormwater runoff through impacted materials, protect the nearby Paint Creek, and limit the spread of contamination. Our geotechnical engineers and groundwater modeling teams designed a foundation system to prevent impact on groundwater flow and ongoing remediation activities.

We can’t wait to see the city’s largest vacant brownfield property come to life! With Frank Rewold & Son, Inc. driving the project, a vibrant city will be made even more so! For more information, click here.
