Remediation Work Begins on the Iconic Beury Building

Beury Building North Broad philadelphia
After almost 4 decades of dormancy, Shift Capital is proud to announce that abatement work has begun at the Beury Building.  On February 19, 2018, environmental workers began work on the clean-up of the site, a first step towards the return of the North Philadelphia iconic building.

The entire building will be remediated of all environmental hazards by Pepper Environmental Services Inc, managed by Philadelphia’s React Environmental Professional Group Inc.  The work is scheduled for completion in early June and is the first benchmark for the full renovation of the building.  This financing opportunity was made possible through investments made by Shift Capital and the Commonwealth of PA’s Industrial Site Reuse Program – in conjunction with Chester County Economic Development Council.
