An Austin-area real estate developer was in contract to purchase and redevelop a commercial property in north Austin for the purpose of redeveloping the property with multi-family residential units. At the time CEC was engaged, the property consisted of three buildings, including a gym, office spaces, and other retail tenants, with a paved parking lot. The property’s former use was industrial manufacturing. When the manufacturing facility closed in the 1990s, a subsurface investigation was conducted. Due to minor impacts to groundwater at that time, limitations were placed on use of the property in the form of a restrictive covenant on the deed, which said the property was suitable for commercial use. This developer has used CEC Austin for site development in the past and engaged CEC for the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA).
