Environmental Studies

Since R Street was as a warehouse and industrial district for over 150 years, the corridor contains many toxic or potential toxic sites.  Brownfield clean-up remains a challenge to the redevelopment of R Street.  Additionally, as the corridor begins to transform into a higher density mixed-use neighborhood, the infrastructure and physical characteristics of the area will change and need to be addressed or mitigated.

Listed below are the significant Environmental Documents that have been created for the Corridor.
