From 1998, the TCEQ has performed site assessment activities totaling over $1,500,000. BSA Applicants have included a number of municipalities, school districts, and nonprofit organizations. Redevelopment plans for some of these sites have included a Boys and Girls Club of America, low-income housing, a homeless shelter, fire stations, a municipal water tower, and park land.

Connecting Austin through Transit-Oriented Development at Crestview Station


VCP 1830 Before

Previously, Crestview Station was a 71 acre property in central Austin that functioned as a chemical research facility from 1949 until 2005. The property was in a prime location for a transit-oriented development, once contamination from the historical use was cleaned up.


VCP 1830 After

The site has been redeveloped as a mixed-use property, with both single family homes and apartment, ball fields, and 150,000 square feet of office and retail space. The Crestview Station stop for Austin's new MetroRail opened earlier this year.

Uptown Building Boom at the Crescent Complex, Dallas


VCP 1976 Before

Cedar Springs and Pearl Streets are located between downtown Dallas and high-end residences. Residences, industrial businesses, and an office complex occupied the site from the 1970s until 2003, when remediation of soils contaminted by petroleum-related chemicals began. Redevelopment of the Crescent Complex kicked off an uptown building boom.


VCP 1976 After

Construction of the Rosewood Court building was completed in 2008, creating new office space, upscale and pedestrian friendly retail amenities, as well a parking garage for the Crescent Complex.
