Silvercup Studios

OVERVIEW
Silvercup Studios is New York’s most iconic film and television production facility, with 23 studios totaling over 500,000 SF. The studios are divided into three categories: North, Main, and East, all of which Langan supported. Sections of the studios were former industrial warehouse/parking site was previously developed with a manufactured gas plant and filling station, and were part of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) Brownfield Cleanup Program.

Langan prepared and implemented environmental and geotechnical investigations, and designed remedial measures to clean up the site for future development. Langan designed a new bulkhead along the shoreline (about 500 linear feet) to support future development and to serve as containment barriers to prevent contamination migration. We conducted a Phase I ESA and Phase II ESI at the site. Under the Phase I ESA, Langan reviewed agency databases, historical records, and prior ownership and uses of the site. We also performed a site inspection, including the surrounding properties.
