Apartment complex planned at former brownfields site

Approval sought in Nashua for 152 units at former Beebe Rubber property

A Londonderry-based development firm is seeking approval to construct the final phase of an apartment complex on a former brownfields site in Nashua.

According to the Nashua Telegraph, Vincent Iacozzi, managing partner of 22 Marshall St. LLC, has applied to the Nashua Planning Board to OK a four-story, 40-unit apartment building at 2 Marshall St., the former Beebe Rubber Company site.

The building will be part of an apartment complex with a total of 152 units.

The site abuts a second lot the developer owns at 20-22 Marshall St., where plans call for construction of two 40-unit apartment buildings and a third building that will hold 32 units, attorney Gerald R. Prunier of Nashua told the newspaper.

According to the Telegraph, the project was modified and delayed several times to allow for cleanup of hazardous materials at the 20-22 Marshall St. site, where the former Beebe Rubber manufactured car parts and other rubber products.

In 2006, the state Department of Environmental Services deemed the site a brownfields and launched a remedial action plan to remove contaminants, primarily trichloroethylene, that seeped into the soil and groundwater, according to DES documents.

Prunier told the newspaper he believes the cleanup is done. The state is continuing to monitor the area with testing.
