BROWNFIELDS

Brownfield redeployment has become viable over the past 30 years as federal and state legislation paved the way for communities, companies and individuals to effectively sell their nonproductive assets to entrepreneurs, developers and sophisticated end users with the ability to restore and reposition property into productive use. Superfund statutes were created in the early 1980s, Empowerment Zones and Enterprise Communities were introduced in the early 1990s, Brownfield Reform Legislation was passed in the mid-1990s, and the Small Business Relief and Brownfield’s Revitalization Act occurred in early 2000. All of this contributed to the promotion of environmental cleanup and the redeployment of previously non-productive real estate.

Today, marketing and successful repositioning of brownfield sites requires a unique combination of environmental understanding and the ability to communicate such with perspective buyers as well as the ability to exploit opportunities in a limited market. It is important to be knowledgeable about environmental issues and informed on the impact relating to reuse and visionary in creating alternative uses.  Vast market knowledge, marketing techniques and access to a network of sophisticated end users, developers, and capital resources is also critical to understanding the disposition of brownfield property.
