Brian Clark, Shareholder in the firm's Energy section, will moderate a panel presentation titled "Revitalization of Old Industrial Sites for Multiple Reuse" on December 5 during the National Brownfields Conference in Pittsburgh. Buchanan is sponsoring the lunch presentation, which is presented by the Brownfield Coalition of the Northeast (BCONE).
About the session: In many northeastern states, the state brownfield programs have generated successful redevelopment outcomes over the last 20 years. However, these success stories have tended to focus on one use rather than mixed uses. With the advent of new and sophisticated remediation and exposure risk assessments, as well as advanced industrial operational techniques, the opportunities for reuse for both residential, commercial and industrial sites are now a reality. This session will focus on two states: Pennsylvania and Shell Cracker opportunities, and Delaware and waterfront redevelopment.
