"Officials Seek Base Options", Philadelphia Business Journal

Frederick D. Strober, Partner in the Real Estate Department, Co-Chair of the Construction Practice Group, and Philadelphia Office Managing Partner, is quoted in this article about the military properties that have landed recently on the federal Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) list. The long process of closing a base, and the difficulty of the actual transfer of property are discussed.

"Environmental issues are also a concern, as well as bringing the properties, which were never subjected to municipal zoning laws, up to code," said Mr. Strober, who, since 1997, has served as co-counsel to the nonprofit corporation involved in revitalizing the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard.
