Edison replacing toxic soil near High Line to prep for project

Edison Properties is paving the way for a development project near the High Line by replacing thousands of pounds of contaminated soil at the site.

The full-block site, located between West 17th and 18th streets from 10th to 11th avenues, was once home to a gas processing plant which released industrial byproducts into the soil below. HLP Properties, a division of Edison, began work last week to replace the soil, and hopes to build a mixed-use structure at the site, according to HLP executive Anthony Borelli.

“We’re remediating the site, cleaning it up … to prepare it for future development,” Borelli told DNAinfo.

The soil replacement project is expected to take about a year, and its first phase will be completed by December, according to DNAinfo. But it will be several years before the mixed-use structure – with commercial space on the lower floors and residential units on the upper floors – is built.

Until then, the block will continue to be used as a parking lot, according to DNAinfo. [DNAinfo]  – Hiten Samtani
