Citizens Park Conversion of Legacy Manufacturing Facility

Barrington, Illinois

This award-winning project converted a former industrial facility into a 45-acre, multi-purpose park in the Village of Barrington.  The project included demolition of the existing buildings, removal of underground storage tanks, remediation of soil contamination, completing a Tier 3 Health Risk Assessment of the site and processing the property through the Illinois EPA Site Remediation Program. The redevelopment was funded primarily through an Illinois Municipal Brownfield Redevelopment Grant that V3 helped the Park District obtain. The park includes outdoor fields, playgrounds, pedestrian and bike paths and naturalized areas.
