“I am pleased that after considering input from all stakeholders, Judge Gross approved the sale of the former PES refinery to Hilco Redevelopment Partners. Based upon Hilco’s stellar track record and unique capabilities, I look forward to partnering with them on remediating and redeveloping the site. Residents of the surrounding community have long suffered the ill-effects of environmental contamination without reaping any of the financial rewards. Now is the time for us to join together in creating a shared vision for true economic and community inclusiveness on this large piece of Philadelphia real estate.”
