“They’re dedicated, committed. They don’t overextend themselves, they don’t take on too many projects. When Viridian’s on a project, they’re focused on it.”
“There are a million items involved in a project like this and each of those items has a different path and coordinating those to go down the same path is very, very difficult. But Viridian makes it look easy. And they make it all look connected. It’s like solving a puzzle – knowing which pieces go where and how they fit. Viridian’s level of detail is unlike anything that I’ve seen. It’s a monumental task, and they’re doing a phenomenal job.”
“The biggest thing was the great team Viridian assembled – the lending folks, the general contractor, geotech, regulators, the municipality. We all sat down as a team, and they made sure everybody’s concerns and issues were addressed. You know everybody’s going to have their own things they want to get done and there would have to be some give and take, but at the end of the day Viridian was able to get everything done.”
“Viridian is a very reputable company; they were very open and honest with us. I trust them implicitly. They were a very straightforward group of individuals with high integrity.“
“Viridian Partners were always very good communicators. They’re very complicated projects, but they’re able to boil it down in a way that everyone understands so we could make smart decisions. They’re great guys; I trust them. They’re top notch.“
“Viridian takes the tough stuff that nobody else is willing to go near, and they solve the problems. They’re not afraid to spend whatever time and expertise are necessary to get it done. They really are impressive at all levels.“
“These are heavy, heavy lifts for anyone in the industry. There’s a plethora of challenges, and there are only a handful of folks that get involved and have the expertise to close on these sites. Viridian is as good as it gets with brownfield sites.“
“Viridian Partners are one of the best in the business, particularly because they’re more national in reach. Whether its PA, NJ or CA, these guys have seen a lot of sites, they know the nuances and each particular regulation within that given space. I think that sets them apart.“
“Viridian Partners are very qualified, very knowledgeable. They understand brownfield redevelopments at a level that most people don’t. They’re easy to work with; super responsive. They’re all the things you’re supposed to be as a company.“
“They’re unique in what they do. Viridian understands the complexity of remediation and redevelopment, plus they understand our business. Sophistication, knowledge and depth are some of their key strengths.“
Environmentally contaminated land creates a significant liability for an organization and a community. No one wants to sell their contaminated property, only to find months or years later that the liability never left their balance sheet. Viridian knows that the sale itself isn’t the end of the game if the envi-ronmental contamination and liability aren’t properly and permanently addressed.
How do we do this? By offering a time-proven environmental liability transfer package – supported by financial and insurance tools – assuring sellers that contamination present at the time of acquisition will be remediated with full regulatory closure. In the 50+ transactions for which we have employed this model, there is not a single instance where the liability of a Viridian-acquired property has come back to the original corporate owners. Viridian is arguably the gold standard in a very limited pool of brownfield redevelopers offering a bona fide risk transfer package.
Here’s a visual representation of how our liability assumption process works:
Viridian embraces the unique philosophy that Brownfield development requires equal parts real estate, remediation and environmental risk management expertise. Our in-house professionals working in partnership with a highly qualified set of environmental attorneys, engineers and insurance experts are best suited to ensure that site remediation work is fully completed to the benefit of all parties.
We value the trust that sellers place in our experience and track-record. We provide the security and peace of mind that comes with knowing that we will carry out what we’ve committed to do.
