The EBC James D.P. Farrell Award for Brownfields-Remediation Project of the Year is awarded to the Kettle Point development in recognition of the successful redevelopment of a former bulk petroleum storage and distribution terminal along the shores of East Providence, Rhode Island into a mixed-use commercial and residential complex. A mix of remedial strategies including on-site treatment and stabilization of impacted soils, re-use of the treated material, and petroleum recovery technologies allowed for the development of a 90,000 square foot surgical rehabilitation facility and 290-unit residential complex. In addition, a first-of-its-kind hybrid Settlement Agreement allowed portions of the property to be sold and redeveloped independent of the parent property thus enabling financing and phasing of the project.

The award will be presented by:
