The abundance of large shuttered industrial plants and the emergence of the clean energy economy has created a unique opportunity to breathe new life into these sites with an Eco-Industrial Park redevelopment plan. Forsite is actively involved in acquiring large, dormant industrial tracts that can be recycled into industrial parks with a major focus on clean energy project development.
Ideal sites for the EIP redevelopment model include large shuttered or underutilized manufacturing complexes of 200+ acres with large buffers. The sites have heavy infrastructure with active permits; rail, trans-loading, central steam plants, onsite power generation, waste-water treatment plants, water intake, dedicated natural gas, heavy electrical interconnect and/or deep water ports access.
We believe the Eco Industrial Park model represents a powerful and transformative redevelopment trend that can be duplicated throughout the US. An “industry transformer” that offers substantial upside to the earlier adopters.
