Mintz Levin
One Financial Center
38th Floor
Boston, MA

CDCs and other developers frequently encounter contaminated land and buildings as they pursue real estate development. This training is intended to give these developers the tools and information they need to move forward with identifying their options, selecting the appropriate professionals to assist them, identifying the available financial resources, conducting an assessment of the sites, deciding whether and how to proceed with development, and remediation of the sites.

The afternoon will include case study presentations of CDC brownfields redevelopment projects including the extent of remediation needed, the problems that arose and how they were addressed by the organization.
