Green Street Environmental performed Environmental Due Diligence in advance of acquisition of a multi-family residential complex. The initial review indicated Recognized Conditions requiring follow-on Phase II research, sampling, and analyses. Contaminants of concern were identified in soil and groundwater. Regulated and hazardous materials were also found in the building. In addition, a petroleum UST was found onsite. Green Street Environmental developed and implemented remediation of all issues of concern, including UST removal and closure.


“Valstone Partners is a private equity real estate company and we often deal with environmental issues related to commercial real estate.  Scott Rifkin and Green Street have been our GO-TO environmental consultants for over 10 years.  They are exceptionally responsive and always able to convert complex environmental matters into an easy to understand, actionable business issue.  Green Street has helped us turn brownfields (and buildings) into greenfields (and profits).”
