Do you own, or wish to buy/lease, a piece of property that may have contamination issues such as asbestos, fuel spill, old drums/tanks on site?   Do you have a site that is abandoned, and/or obsolete?  Are you looking for development opportunities or have ideas for housing projects on a piece of property?
