Albany project put on state Superfund list Wellington Row commercial development complex site tainted by chemicals By BRIAN NEARING Albany Times-Union (NY) February 25, 2011ALBANY -- Part of the "Wellington Row" property now being cleared for a commercial complex and 11-story office tower near the state Capitol has been added to the state Superfund pollution cleanup program.
Land at 67 Howard St. is contaminated with mercury and several carcinogenic volatile organic compounds left behind decades ago by the former Albany Laboratories, according to a Superfund notice from the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
The contaminated property is at the rear of Wellington Row, where developers have demolished all but the facades of five buildings, including the Wellington Hotel, and plan a complex that could include an 11-story office tower.
A cleanup at the site began in mid-2008, said DEC spokeswoman Lori Severino. While the pollution presents no current threat to public health, it could threaten workers involved in any future construction or "on-site ground-intrusive activities," the DEC notice said.
