April 6, 2011 - Boston, MA: Bob Dorfman, president of MA Brownfields Tax Credits, announced the completion of a Massachusetts brownfields tax credit sale associated with Finard Properties and The Shops at Riverwood. The 106,000 square foot lifestyle center, anchored by a Price Rite Supermarket and home to Sovereign Bank, is currently in phased development.
Located adjacent to the Neponset River in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood, The Shops at Riverwood’s site once housed the Bay State Paper Mill, the oldest continuously operating paper mill in the United States until its closure in 2000. Redevelopment required the demolition of the old mill, but it has also included the environmental detoxification of eight-acres of brownfields, making it a vital part of the ongoing Neponset River Restoration Project.
August 9, 2010 - Bob Dorfman, president of MA Brownfields Tax Credits, announces that on August 5th, Governor Duval Patrick signed "An Act Relative to Economic Development Reorganization".
This Act extends the Commonwealth's Brownfields tax credit program until December 31, 2013. Without the adopted amendment to the General Laws, this vital tax credit program was scheduled to terminate on December 31, 2011. Many Brownfield remediation projects would have been left in limbo without knowing if the credit would have been available for their projects. This concern, at least for the next several years, is now removed.
