The LVIP VII industrial redevelopment plan won the support of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the City of Bethlehem, Northampton County, the U.S. Economic Development Administration and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, all of which have contributed financial and technical resources to the project. LVIP’s redevelopment of the former Bethlehem Steel plant in Bethlehem, PA has won us much acclaim, and furthers our belief that LVIP VII has been our most challenging and rewarding project yet.
Pennsylvania presented a $15-million check to LVIP for further environmental and infrastructure improvements through the Commonwealth’s Business in Our Sites program to help brownfield properties become productive.
LVIP received a Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence for its successful remediation of the former Bethlehem Steel facility, which is creating new businesses on a brownfield site. LVIP VII was also honored with the Phoenix Award for excellence in brownfield development. Presented by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Award recognizes LVIP VII as a national model for redevelopment of brownfields.
