Baltimore officials have finalized the $1.1 million sale of a 19-acre "brownfields" site on Pulaski Highway to construction magnate Willard Hackerman, who plans to develop a big-box store or warehouses or both, a city economic development official said Tuesday.
The sale of the lot, the former site of a waste incinerator, was completed Friday, said M.J. "Jay" Brodie, president of the Baltimore Development Corp.
Whiting-Turner Contracting Co.
Hackerman formed Pulaski Limited Partnership to develop the Northeast Baltimore site and still needs City Council approval to proceed.
"That would enable [Hackerman] to pursue development, which would produce jobs and taxes," Brodie said, adding that he was "convinced" Hackerman would succeed.
The incinerator closed in 1995 and was demolished and the site cleaned up.
