BCONE is proud to celebrate the success of the Harbor Point redevelopment project in Stamford Connecticut with our 2018 Sustainable Communities Redevelopment Award.
BCONE presents this award to the brownfield development project which, from an overall perspective, has provided the greatest benefit to the municipality and its citizens. The Harbor Point project, which was submitted by Fuss O’Neill, was chosen as the winner of a very competitive field.
Harbor Point is a LEED-ND gold-certified, mixed-use, transit-oriented development in the South End of Stamford, Connecticut. The Harbor Point brownfield redevelopment project turned contaminated former manufacturing properties into more than two billion dollars of taxable assets, public parks, waterfront access, and a new community. Remedial actions have included excavation and off-site disposal of more than 200,000 cubic yards of polluted soil, installation of more than 50-acres of geomembrane engineered controls, construction of vapor barriers and mitigation systems, and reuse of more than 100,000 cubic yards of crushed concrete and recycled stone.
The State DECD and DEEP have been closely involved with the remediation with State investments totaling $8 million of funding, including Connecticut’s Targeted Brownfield Development Loan Program, Regional Brownfield Grant Program, and Municipal Brownfield Pilot Program, as well as establishment of the Harbor Point Infrastructure Improvement District. The Harbor Point Redevelopment Project has established Stamford as a true destination to live, work, and play.
