Location: Philadephia, PA
Brickhouse Environmental was proud to work with Bancroft Green, a valued client, to conduct a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) as part of the due diligence process prior to acquiring the property. The property was a vacant and deterioarting building for nearly 10 years in the Mount Airy section of Philadeephia. According to historical sources, the structure dated back to the early to middle 1900s and was used as an auto wagon repair shop in the mid-20th century. The Phase I ESA evaluated all available historical sources, prior environmental reports, and regulatory databases. Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) were not identified, and Bancroft Green was able to move forward with their redevelopment plans.
Bancroft Green and its partner Re-Vision are working to create a quality residential development incorporating retail and co-working space into its design. The property at Carpenter Lane will obtain LEED certification through split ductless heating and cooling, energy recovery ventilators, low flow fixtures, a courtyard to allow natural lighting into the structure, and a green roof. Original timber from the historic structure will be reclaimed and incorporated into the new structure. Read more about Bancroft Green and the project here.
