Commercial Development Company Buys 58-Acre Brownfield, Plans Remediation

Environmental Leader
November 25, 2014

Commercial Development Company, a North American commercial real estate and brownfield redevelopment company, has acquired a 58-acre, environmentally distressed waterfront industrial site in Savannah, Georgia from Atlantic Wood Industries.

Environmental Liability Transfer, an affiliate of Commercial Development Company, has assumed responsibility for legacy environmental liabilities associated with the site and its former operators.

For several decades, this property was a wood treatment facility operated by Atlantic Wood Industries until being shuttered in 2007. Since closing its doors, ground contamination and environmental hazards have prohibited redevelopment efforts.
