COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A shuttered coal-burning plant in central Ohio is being sold to a St. Louis-based commercial real estate and brownfield redevelopment company.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/29nLcGm ) Commercial Development Co. will buy the 470-acre site that’s about 10 miles south of Columbus along the Scioto (sy-OH’-tuh) River.

Details of the transaction weren’t immediately released.

The plant was one of seven coal-burning plants that American Electric Power closed last year over environment concerns.

The developer now plans soil and groundwater cleanup efforts at the site along with asbestos abatement. It also plans to demolish some structures.

The work is expected to take three years.
