State Grant Aids Ecorse Redevelopment Project

A $175,000 state grant will help the city of Ecorse redevelop a portion of 
riverfront property that will be leased to National Steel Corp., according 
to Department of Environmental Quality Director Russell Harding.

Ecorse will use the Site Reclamation Program funds to conduct environmental 
investigations on a 16-acre parcel at 380 Great Lakes Drive.  The property 
is owned by the Nicholson Terminal and Dock Company Inc. which operates a 
marine terminal and storage facility there.

Nicholson proposes to complete the demolition of industrial structures and 
build a climate-controlled steel coil warehouse that will be leased to 
National Steel Corp. for the storage of steel coil used in its 
manufacturing operations.  Redevelopment of the site will generate $12 
million in private investment and 30 permanent jobs.

"Revitalizing brownfield properties is a cornerstone of Governor John 
Engler's environmental and urban renewal strategy," Harding said.  "The DEQ 
is pleased to work with Ecorse so that this former industrial site can 
return to productive use."

The Site Reclamation Program provides grant assistance to local units of 
government for environmental response activities at contaminated properties 
where redevelopment is proposed.
