Environmental regulators are overseeing plans for an investigation that could lead to the cleanup of chemicals at the site of an abandoned Endicott Johnson factory in Johnson City.

The old Victory building was acquired by a Syracuse developer for $1.6 million last March. Matthew Paulus has not revealed his vision for a project at the massive building at 59 Lester Avenue.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation is accepting comments from the public on what steps may be needed to address contamination at the five-acre site.

It remains to be determined what remediation work may be needed before a redevelopment project could move forward.

The six-story Victory building was constructed a century ago. Developer Isaac Anzaroot purchased the site from Broome County in 2017. His plan to turn the site into a senior housing complex was scrapped.
