690 St. Paul/175 Martin Street
Since first being leased in 2008, the building at 175 Martin St. has been the location of District administrative offices as well as temporary ‘swing space’ for schools under construction and currently houses one district school and a charter school. The building being leased by the District is part of a larger, four building, 4.7 acre site that is being redeveloped under the State’s Brownfield Cleanup Program.
All investigation and remediation work being done at the property is actively monitored by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) staff and all work elements being done have a written component that describes the measures that will be taken to protect the health and safety of the public, District employees, and remediation workers. Descriptions of the work phases are provided by NYSDEC and New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) in periodic Fact Sheets as well as reports submitted by LaBella Associates.
In addition to providing up-to-date information on work being conducted at the property, the Fact Sheets also present a detailed description of the site history. For a complete sampling history refer to the document titled 2016-2017 Annual Monitoring Report 175 Martin St (690 St Paul).
