20 Years in the Making Urban Remediation
In 2001, the EPA recognized Hillwood's partnership with the City of Dallas at Victory Park as the nation's largest and most successful brownfields projects to date and presented it with a Phoenix Award. The prestigious award is presented for the highest excellence in brownfields redevelopment.
In all, Hillwood oversaw the removal of 310,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil, demolishment of 45 structures, and treatment of 15 million gallons of groundwater. According to an EPA spokesperson, "It is one of our most outstanding achievements in brownfields redevelopment and the largest EPA Brownfields project in the country. To take land that was once home to a city dump, electric plant, and railroad yard and turn it into a place where children and families can live, work and play is the ultimate example of environmental excellence."
