Roger Delisle and his development team, Smithtown-based Island Associates, have paid $2.45 million for a 4.1-acre former Superfund site in West Islip they hope to transform into a retail center, Long Island Business News reported. When complete, the $12 million project will hold a Quick Check market and gas station, a free-standing restaurant and a 9,000-square-foot retail center at 425 Union Boulevard. A factory was built on the site in 1938. But manufacturing on the property so badly contaminated the soil below that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency designated it a Superfund site. Delisle bought the land from the Dzus Fastener Company and the developer is already working with New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation to test and clean the property. Dzus and its parent company, DFCI Solutions, are in charge of the actual remediation. Thousands of tons of tainted soil was dug out of the site in the 1990s, leading the DEC to rule that the dangerous contamination there had stabilized. But Superstorm Sandy stirred up polluted soil again, forcing more cleanup at the site. Delisle represented the buyers in the recent sale, while LIBN noted that Harvey Kolin of Corporate Commercial Realty took the lead for Dzus. [LIBN]
