BusinessWire is reporting that O'Neill Properties Group (OPG) announced today that it has completed brownfield remediation at the notorious 40-acre lagoon at The Pointe, the anxiously awaited $2.2 billion project in Sayreville, NJ. The Pointe is the largest mixed-use brownfield redevelopment ever undertaken in the Northeast. Vertical construction will commence in spring 2016 on anchor tenant Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, which will open a 200,000-square-foot mega outdoor sporting goods store, the largest Bass Pro in the country outside of its original flagship operation.

When the 440-acre site was purchased in 2008, OPG committed to cleaning up the massive brownfield contamination. One of the most noticeable areas where remediation work took place was at the location of the new Bass Pro Shops, where a 40-acre lagoon sat filled with titanium dioxide waste byproducts from the former on-site National Lead manufacturing facility. The lagoon, with its highly-acidic, yolk-like substance and changing colors, was an infamous landmark in the region. Challenged with a unique chemical composition, OPG enlisted the help of engineering firm Maser Consulting to undertake what quickly became the largest, and most intensive chemically contaminated site remediation project in the country.
