Germantown Rail Corridor Brownfield Redevelopment

Revitalizing an urban ecosystem: balancing industry, community, and open space


Project Details

Great Ecology is the ecological consultant on the Lord Aeck Sargent team for the Germantown Shelby Park Rail Corridor area-wide brownfield redevelopment plan. Funded by a U.S. EPA Brownfield Grant, the project team is assessing the opportunities and constraints of the project site as it relates to stormwater management, restoration of Beargrass Creek, streetscaping, and economic development for the former industrial neighborhood which covers over 650 acres and includes several historic mills and other industrial properties. As a part of the team, Great Ecology developed environmental strategy, implementation planning, and participated in public forums.
