Our mock case will involve High Tech Industries, Inc., a company that wants to build a new world headquarters on a high value location, and Messy Scrap Yard Incorporated, a property owner that wants to sell a 75-year-old 30-acre family-run scrap yard in the perfect spot.
The program series has provided an interactive case study on the trials and tribulations of a MOCK redevelopment of an old contaminated industrial property located in Massachusetts into a new and vibrant future use. We have observed the interaction between a buyer (High Tech Inc.) and a seller (Messy Scrap Yard Incorporated), along with their legal counsel, during acquisition negotiations, assessments, resolution of assessment results, the funding process and final sale of the project.
As negotiations progressed, the MOCK transaction explored several other key factors in the redevelopment process including: site use planning and zoning, working around environmental use restrictions, financial planning and funding support options (including tax credits and EPA, as well as Mass Development Funding programs) and how they may help balance the project proforma.
As the project become more defined, other key factors such as demolition was reviewed, now part four will focus on remediation waste management from the start of excavation to final off-site disposal to reuse.
