Station Landing, a 15-acre, 1-million-SF mixed use site in Medford, MA, began excavation work for an underground garage when a series of unforeseen environmental conditions were discovered. These findings, previously undetected in past environmental testing, included Manufactured Gas Plan (MGP) residuals, cyanide, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Cleanup and Safety Measures
Over the course of eight years, National Development worked closely with the MASS DEP on a number of remediation action plans leading to excellent results. After our cleanup efforts were completed, there was no longer any significant risk, leading to a full closure of the environmental reporting process.
Station Landing was granted the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’s first award for Smart Growth Development. Station Landing also featured the first LEED Gold multifamily building in Massachusetts.
