Former Bunge Property
Landmark teamed with the Project for Pride in Living (Maya Commons) and Riverton Community Housing (Brook Avenue Co-op) to help redevelop the 1.64-acre Minneapolis property, located near the University of Minnesota. The former grain elevator and railroad property was redeveloped as an affordable housing complex and the former tower was remodeled for use as common space.
Landmark prepared a Phase I Assessment that pulled together the complex site history including two previous cleanups, and supplemented this information with a Phase II Investigation of soil and soil vapor to determine remaining Response Actions necessary to redevelop the unique structure and property into shared space for residential housing. Landmark provided detailed Pre-Demolition Asbestos and Hazardous Building Materials Surveys for the buildings and silos, and oversight of lead abatement in the tower/head house building in accordance with applicable regulations. Landmark also oversaw contaminated soil excavation for both redevelopments and the installation of a vapor mitigation system for the Brook Avenue Co-op building. Landmark’s help with securing grant money for the environmental work was instrumental for the success of the project.
