Avalon Yonkers

The multi-phase redevelopment of a former industrial property along the Hudson River waterfront in Yonkers is underway with an extensive environmental remediation program being managed by AKRF. Our work began with pre-design investigations, including specialized laser-induced fluorescence geoprobe tooling, and we prepared the Remedial Action Work Plan. Remediation components include excavation; in-situ soil solidification; pile modifications; slurry wall; anti-seep collar for combined sewer overflow; dewatering including groundwater treatment; bioremediation; sub-slab depressurization; and non-aqueous phase liquids recovery for coal tar and petroleum. Community air monitoring includes dust and particulate monitors and odor and dust suppression. The full development plan for this New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program project will include over 600 apartments, a parking garage, and waterfront esplanade.
