Options for the clean-up included removal of the waste ($20 million), capping the polluted area ($7 million) or the exciting prospect of using bio-remediation to clean the site.

Berkshire Co-op Announces Move

The Berkshire Co-Op Redevelopment

The Berkshire Co-Op has announced that it's moving. Its new home will be located at the former New England Log Homes factory, which is directly down the street from its current location. The proposed land contains pollutants and is considered a brownfield site. The new eight-acre location will be cleaned up and include an expanded Berkshire Co-op Market, residential housing and a recreational project, which would include a two-acre Housatonic River waterfront park. It will be a $30 million redevelopment project.
