WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The site of the former Great Lakes Chemical factory in West lafayette is being torn down to make way for new development.

The stretch of buildings sit near the corner of Sagamore Parkway and Morehouse Road.

West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis said the soil has been tested to make sure it's safe.

He said the Indiana Department of Environmental Management is in charge of making sure there are no potential hazards for future development.

Now it's just a matter of figuring out what's replacing it.

"If you look at the work that we've done with Sagamore Parkway and the way that the population base is growing towards that direction in the county, the Great Lakes site became sort of a target for residential development or something that would be compatible," he said.

Dennis couldn't say when demolition would be done. There are no plans set for what will being going in once that's finished.
