Brownfields Gain Acceptance

According to the ECS Land Reuse Report, “brownfields redevelopment is now a mainstream real estate trend.” The report looks at national and regional trends in the reuse of contaminated land, which currently amounts to 47,600 acres across the U.S.

Although Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Michigan and Massachusetts have the most progressive approaches to land reuse, brownfields are being re-developed across the midwest, northeast and mid-atlantic states. Over half the sites are being constructed for mixed uses – commercial, cultural and residential. The authors conclude that communities and developers now feel more comfortable with these development opportunities, and states are increasingly encouraging them.
