Project: 409 on Nine
Location: Ferndale, Michigan
Triterra conducted environmental due diligence and vapor mitigation services on this mixed-use, multi-story development located along the 9 Mile corridor in the immediate vicinity of City Hall in Downtown Ferndale. Triterra also assisted in amending a restrictive covenant, which then allowed for the planned development and secured $2.6 million in Brownfield Tax Increment Financing (TIF). Redevelopment of the site had been previously hindered due to extensive brownfield conditions including, but not limited to, outdated building structures and site features, and the presence of soil, groundwater, and soil gas contamination. The project was only financially feasible through the implementation of financial incentives to address Brownfield conditions.
Completed in 2020, the project increased urban density and existing green space in the corridor, as well as provided additional housing and employment in the downtown area.
