Redeveloping the French Creek West Industrial Site

December 7, 2021

A vacant industrial parcel in Pennsylvania is finally being transformed into a mixed-residential space. Many projects have been proposed for this site but were discarded due to most of the site lying along the FEMA floodplain and the stringent floodplain requirements of Phoenixville Borough. T&M reassessed the FEMA models, with improvements and additional topographic detail, resulting in the current French Creek redevelopment becoming viable. Good planning allowed for a remediation of a historic industrial site and the creation of a project that will bring lasting benefits to the local community.

Project manager, Zachary Ranstead, PE, LEED-AP, CFM, discusses how this project came to fruition in “Redeveloping the French Creek West Industrial Site” featured in Storm Water Solutions magazine.
