Abstract

Brownfield redevelopment is seen by many, city planners, environmentalists entrepreneurs alike, as one of the best available ways to revitalize the inner city. Brownfield redevelopment appeals to the environmentalist by offering to clean up contaminated land. It appeals to entrepreneurs as a chance to acquire cheap land in a good location. It appeals to cities as a chance to aesthetically improve the urban landscape and increase tax revenues. It appears to be a bright light on the horizon of the otherwise dim realm of ecologically minded urban development.
