CDC Purchases Bay Area Brownfield Site, ELT Assumes Environmental Risk

For several decades, this property in Antioch, CA was a paper mill operated by Gaylord Container Corporation until it was retired and demolished in 2002. Since closing, environmental impact from past operations has limited redevelopment options. CDC's acquisition gives new potential to redevelop this attractive waterfront industrial site. 
In addition to selling surplus real estate to CDC, this transaction enabled the seller to transfer environmental obligations to Environmental Liability Transfer, Inc. (ELT).  ELT assumed responsibility for legacy environmental liabilities associated with the site and its former operators. Read More
