Public information meeting to be held Dec. 9 about redevelopment plans for the Davidson Depot Street brownfields property

RALEIGH

RALEIGH – The N.C. Division of Waste Management will host a public information meeting on December 9 concerning redevelopment plans for the Davidson Depot Street brownfields property in Davidson.

This meeting will provide citizens with an update on the brownfields redevelopment plans for the property, located at 301 Depot Street. The prospective developer is 301 Depot Holdings, LLC. Brownfields redevelopment plans include reuse of the existing structures, subject to local zoning requirements, including the approved uses of office, restaurant, brewery, retail, parking and possibly other commercial use.

The meeting will include a brief history of past events, ongoing activities and the planned long-term cap solution. It will focus on the proposed brownfields redevelopment and long-term asbestos risk management at the property, not the local land-use or zoning provisions related to the project. This meeting will not cover NCDOT roadway project U-5907 or Charlotte Water water-main expansion plan.

The brownfields property was first developed in 1890 as a warehouse for a cotton mill. From the 1930s until the 1960s, Carolina Asbestos Company operated on the property. A portion of it was used as disposal for asbestos-containing material. This area was investigated in 1984, and a soil cap was reportedly installed over the impacted areas. In late 2016, it was determined that portions of the soil cap had been breached. Actions were taken to repair and prevent exposure of asbestos containing materials.
