Windsor is actively involved in acquiring Brownfield Properties with various issues and geographies. Brownfields are abandoned or under-used industrial and commercial facilities available for re-use, expansion, or redevelopment of which may be complicated by the presence of hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties takes development pressures off of undeveloped, open land, and both improves and protects the environment. Through remediation these properties can be brought back to an active productive use. We work with leading consultants to responsibly and expeditiously create work plans for approval by the appropriate agencies and once approval is given Windsor is there to execute the plans immediately. Below are some examples of the depth of our “hands on experience”.

The site shows remnants of trinitrotoluene based explosives, volatile organics, chlorinated solvents, inorganic contaminates and chlorinated solvents in the surrounding ground water.
This site was designed as a master planned community with the help of EDAW and world wide landscape design firm. We have obtained approvals for 592 homes and 200,000 square feet of commercial space. With nearly 50% of the site preserved as open space which will become a park for all county residents.

We closed title to the property and are proceeding through the approval and remediation process. Elevated levels of Arsenic are present, which will be corrected during construction. Building and developing the site involves dealing with the stability of the dredged soils which will require additional techniques.
