Historic Hotel Property in Philadelphia

This site is developed with a historic multi-story hotel structure and is located in an area of Philadelphia undergoing rapid revitalization. At the time of REPSG’s Phase I ESA the property was unoccupied. REPSG completed a Phase I Site Assessment that included comprehensive recommendations and cost estimates for environmental abatement and remediation during redevelopment. REPSG’s report included recommendations regarding the presence of asbestos, lead-based paint, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)-containing transformers, aboveground and underground storage tanks, previously documented existing soil contamination at an adjoining site, and other recognized environmental conditions. REPSG also completed a comprehensive sampling survey for the presence of asbestos containing materials, with approximately 300 samples of suspected asbestos-containing materials collected and submitted for analysis
