The 2000 acre former gold mine was abandoned decades ago leaving EPA the task of managing millions of gallons of contaminated water year after year. ERT, with its teammate, Pancontinental Resource Corporation, were selected by EPA to determine if redevelopment of the mine was feasible. ERT and Pancon entered into an option agreement to buy the land with the Receiver for the property in 2019 and are working on proving up a resource.
In 2005 Solutia shut down operations at the 38-acre Queeny Plant after operating as a chemical manufacturing facility for 104 years. Although situated on 38 acres in a desirable location less than a half mile from Downtown St. Louis, with river and rail access, the site has remained vacant, likely due to Solutia’s 100-year environmental legacy.
The National Geospatial Agency (NGA) has chosen to relocate from South St. Louis to approximately 100 acres of mixed-use residential, commercial, and industrial property in near north St. Louis City. While keeping the jobs in St. Louis is of vital importance to the City, presenting the NGA with a clean, construction-ready site is an expensive and formidable challenge on many levels. The City has engaged EOI to assist with this challenge.
