A large state investment is coming to the South End. Next week, the Bond Commission will sign off on $1.2 million to remediate and redevelop polluted industrial sites.

  • 2100 South Main Street: $1 million grant to remediate the 3.4-acre former RISDON manufacturing facility that was the site of a recent major fire. The remediation will address a major public health hazard and prepare the site for redevelopment.
  • Former Bristol Babcock facility: $200,000 grant for investigation into the 6.6-acre parcel located at 40 Bristol Street.

Connecticut has invested more than $220 million in brownfield redevelopment, resulting in the creation of more than 3,000 permanent jobs and over 15,000 construction jobs across the state.
