  • Ocean City, NJ (1888PressRelease) May 26, 2011 - The Walters Group received a Brownfield Renewal Award for the work done at Stafford Park, transforming a former brownfield site into a successful mixed-use redevelopment. Brownfield Renewal magazine bestowed the honor at the 14th National Brownfields Conference held in Philadelphia.

    The Renewal Awards Ceremony honored the Walters Group and two other recipients for their exemplary work and vision in 2010 for finished projects. Winning in the environmental impact category, the Stafford Park project involved the management of environmental issues associated with two landfills, LEED certification for commercial and residential buildings, and the integration of sustainable energy components.

    Stafford Park is a LEED-certified mixed-use redevelopment with the majority of corporate tenants attaining LEED-Silver certification. Currently, the roster of retailers reaping the savings of green building include Target, Costco, Best Buy, Dick's Sporting Goods, PetSmart, AT&T and Ulta. The Vitamin Shoppe reached LEED-Gold certification. In addition, atop the Best Buy, PetSmart and Dicks Sporting Goods, there are solar arrays that provide 30 percent of the electrical needs of the stores. The center is situated off exit 63, at the southwest corner of the Garden State Parkway and Route 72 interchange.
