- Brownfield Flip - Uptown at River's Edge in Bay City
For years, the blighted hulk of the old Industrial Brownhoist factory, once a major local employer, sat empty. A 43-acre contaminated site doesn’t get redeveloped overnight. Bay City’s perseverance, and financial incentives and technical assistance from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, helped clean up and safely reuse this brownfield site. Check out this video to see how Uptown at River’s Edge is now a beautiful riverfront development with a marina, hotel, restaurants, offices, and condominiums.
