Environmental Revitalization:


Overview:
Brownfield Real Estate opportunities are simply... "underused industrial and commercial facilities that are available for re-use".  Expansion or redevelopment of such facilities may be complicated by real or perceived environmental contaminations, zoning restrictions, or local economic realities and impacts.
 

In the United States, a "brownfield site" (or simply a brownfield) is land that was previously used for industrial purposes or some commercial uses and might have had a large manufacturing or process plant located on it. 

 
During the course of many years or decades, the land might have been contaminated by low concentrations of hazardous waste or pollution, and could be re-purposed or reused once it was cleaned up.  Or in many situations there might be an enconomic development reason for a given property to be converted or adapted to a new use.   However, land that might have been more "severely contaminated" or have a higher concentration of hazardous waste or pollution, (like a "Superfund Site"), will not fall under the brownfield classification. Also there are rare circumstances where "mothballed brownfields" are properties where the owners are not willing to transfer title to, or put to a productive reuse.
 
Projects:
Below is a quick summary outline of some of the past Brownfield or Environmental Revitalizatioin projects I have been directly involved in.  You will be able to click on a number of reference links from these summaries to a complete overview of each project.
 
Tucson Project:
tucsonpicThis opportunity consisted of conceiving a redevelopment area near the Santa Cruz River and the busy I-35 corridor between Tucson and Phoenix.  This underutilized area is near Downtown Tucson.  The opportunity included evaluating the properties in the area for ownership, environmental impacts, infrastructure conditions, proximity to the Santa Cruz River, highway access and other features.  For additional information on this project click "Learn More" button. learnMore
