Lehigh Industrial Park
A full range of planning and design services were provided to create a vision for an historic site that was environmentally neglected. The site, a former Lehigh Valley Railroad Maintenance Facility located in the northeast of the downtown in the Borough of Sayre, Bradford County, Pennsylvania. The site has the designation of a Keystone Opportunity Zone (KOZ), and is approximately one mile from the New York - Pennsylvania State border.
The 20+ acre site was expanded by 5 acres which was negotiated as a donation from the Guthrie Healthcare System. During site concept development, the Consumers Water Service requested the need to expand service to a nearby residential neighborhood. This expansion was facilitated by the design team Engineer and implemented. A Phase 1 environmental assessment was completed by US Filters and Phase II site remediation grants received for cleanup in 2001. Three design concepts were prepared and implementation strategies outlined for the ultimate development of the parcel for business and light industry. The market assessment was completed by M-BRS of Towanda in 1999.
