Iowa River Landing and 1st Avenue, Brownfields Revitalization ProjectGeolocation: 41.691, -91.6007

The Iowa City office provided environmental services to this project which originally involved 200 acres, later expanded to 230 acres under the Brownfields program, along the 1st Avenue industrial corridor and the Iowa River. This project began in 1999 and is expected to go until 2013. Terracon was competitively selected to evaluate the Brownfields area for feasibility of redevelopment and integration into the City's primary development plan. Terracon has since continuously provided turnkey Brownfields environmental, geotechnical and construction materials services to assist the City in achieving $70 million in construction of the Coralville Marriott Hotel & Conference Center; $9.4 million for its first pay-to-park ramp and lot; $1.2 million for demolition work; $1.44 million for wetlands mitigation; $6.37 million on infrastructure improvements in the area such as utility relocation and grading; and $1 million of the $12 million total dollars for construction of the River Bend commercial and residential development.
