Additional Property Attributes

The former Berwick Hotel site is located in Downtown Rutland and consists of three separate parcels including a 17,897 square foot parcel (known as the Pit); a 3,424 square foot parcel (known as the Herald newsroom); and a 18,230 square foot parcel (known as the Herald pressroom). A portion of the site is located in the Downtown Rutland Historic District and the area is zoned as Downtown Business. Presently, the Pit is used for municipal parking, the newsroom is used as office space and the pressroom is used for storage and office space. The site is connected to municipal water and municipal sewer. Past land uses at the site include a hotel, shops, a dry cleaners, a dyers and cleaners, residential use, garage and auto sales facility and more recently the Rutland Herald pressroom. The former hotel with shops and the dry cleaners were destroyed by fire in 1973. Assessment and Remediation Planning activities have included: Phase I ESA (January 2008); Phase II ESA (July 2008); Supplemental Phase II ESA (October 2008); Groundwater Monitoring (March 2010); and a Corrective Action Feasibility Investigation and Corrective Action Plan Work Scope and Cost Estimate (December 2012). Site soil contaminants include buried building materials, chrysotile asbestos, VOCs, chlorinated VOCs, SVOCs, PCBs, arsenic and several metals. Variability in groundwater contaminant concentrations was observed, including dissolved and total iron, manganese and iron related bacteria. Currently, a Corrective Action Feasibility Investigation (CAFI) and Corrective Action Plan (CAP) are being conducted in conjunction with redevelopment plans for the site.
