Project Summary

The former Flexsteel manufacturing property is a 43-acre site is located at 3400 Jackson Street in Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa. The site was developed with a 715,000-square-foot building and associated outbuildings that were formerly used for manufacturing furniture for residential, commercial, recreational vehicle, and marine applications. Previous uses of the site included a railyard, manufacturing facilities, auto supply storage, and a sawmill, with manufacturing processes on the site dating to at least 1911. The northern area of the property consists of sizeable wetlands and riparian lengths.

Services Provided

Blackstone conducted wetland delineation, oversaw hazardous materials abatement prior to demolition, and is currently assisting Flexsteel with redevelopment planning and completion of the Land Recycling Program for this large site. Following extensive soil and groundwater sampling, a Site Assessment Report is currently under review with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and Risk Evaluations/Risk Assessments will be completed for individual portions of the property as buyers are identified in partnership with Gronen Redevelopment. No further action certificates will be sought for individual uses as Flexsteel promoted the property for redevelopment.
