CJ Snyder Property
Work was completed on the CJ Snyder building along the Cameron Street industrial corridor in Harrisburg. The Brownfield remediation project consisted of the demolition of an electroplating facility, and the construction of a parking lot to service neighboring companies. This project provided much needed parking for an adjacent business, as well as provides room for commercial development. Through the Enterprise Zone we were able to get help with the Act II remediation which allowed the Brownfield project to be completed.
Durabond Pipe Mill
After suffering five straight quarter losses, in October 2001, Bethlehem Steel, the nation’s third largest steel company, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. A 58+ acre track in Steelton had already been mothballed for years, and any possibility of its revival had effectively been put to rest. When submitting the TecCorridor Planning Grant, CREDC foresaw the redevelopment opportunities for this enormous Brownfield, and thus included this parcel in our submission. In addition to completing asbestos removal on the facility, we have been able to complete an Act 2 remediation process and complete drainage improvements to counteract problems caused during asbestos removal. All projects were undertaken with approximately $1.3 million in ISRP grants and $250,000 in OGP funds.
