What are the benefits of brownfield redevelopment?

Property owners, businesses, and developers who clean up and reuse brownfields provide benefits to themselves and their communities, including:

  • Removing unknowns regarding site conditions that might hold up a sale or redevelopment
  • Increasing return from the property by making it more valuable and marketable
  • Contributing to economic prosperity and environmental restoration in the community
  • Making neighborhoods safer and healthier
  • Avoiding actions by regulatory agencies that may impose penalties and costly cleanups
  • Reducing the potential that adjacent properties could impact their property (and vice versa)
