Franklin Park Central Downtown Mixed-Use Redevelopment

Franklin Park, Illinois

V3 worked with the Village of Franklin Park to revitalize two square blocks of its historic downtown business district. The property was adversely impacted by underground fuel tanks, railroad operations and a dry cleaning business. V3 conducted the environmental site assessments, oversaw the removal of the tanks and contaminated soils, and assisted the Village in obtaining a USEPA Brownfield Cleanup Grant to fund the work. V3 also coordinated with the developer to stage these activities to accelerate construction completion. A “No Further Remediation” letter was obtained from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, which helped enable the Village’s proposed land use plan to become reality.
