The Erie County Industrial Development Agency is seeking proposals to buy and redevelop the cleaned up former Polymer Applications property at 3445 River Road in the Town of Tonawanda.
 
The 6.5-acre shovel-ready industrial site, located near the Goodyear Dunlop Tires North America plant on Sheridan Drive and across from NRG's Huntley power plant, once housed a longtime manufacturing plant that dates back to the 1940s.
 
Polymer Applications operated there from 1968 to 1998, making resins, plastics and rubber products for the automotive paint and coatings industry, but the 66,000-square-foot plant was nearly destroyed by a major fire in 1988 that damaged the process and tank farm area, leading eventually to a shutdown of manufacturing operations and condemnation of the buildings.
 
Starting with a contamination study in 1995, the state Department of Environmental Conservation cleaned up the site via the Superfund program, and ECIDA hired contractors in 2013 to demolish the remaining buildings and grade the site. An adjacent streetscape project has also been completed as part of the town's plans for improvements along that part of River Road.
 
In July 2013, the county foreclosed on the property due to past-due taxes and transferred it to the Buffalo and Erie County Industrial Land Development Corp., an affiliate of ECIDA. ECIDA will distribute marketing materials about the property and will accept proposals until 4 p.m. on Oct. 10.
