Museum Park Remediation Underway

Late last week, I was showing a condo at 900 Biscayne Bay and looked down at the Museum Park remediation work that is well underway.  The remediation process should be completed this November.  Construction of the Miami Art Museum building will then begin and delivery is scheduled for sometime in 2013.  The Miami Science Museum building will break ground in 2011 and is projected to be completed in 2014.  Once complete, Museum Park will be a great addition to the neighborhood and should have a positive impact on the values of Park West condos in the area.

Here is an excerpt from a Miami Herald article on the park: http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/07/04/1715884/environmental-cleanup-to-pave.html Soil tests conducted at the site several years ago found elevated levels of arsenic in the soil, as well as some petroleum residue, presumably from the Belcher Oil terminal once located there. Testing also uncovered two abandoned underground gasoline tanks… Read more »

A boarder-line superfund site! Next to the ocean! Perfect! Even the turf they removed is hazardous waste under RCRA! Break out the calculators – – the cost just went up and will sky-rocket!
