Front Line: Brownfields Offer Redevelopment Opportunities

In this article for Area Development, BLS & Co. Project Director Michelle Comerford provides insights on how brownfield sites offer and undergo redevelopment opportunities. Read more below.


Brownfield sites are often associated with contamination and environmental hazards. Whether real or perceived, contamination may require costly cleanup efforts to make them viable for redevelopment.

A Remediation Plan Is Needed

Before a site can change hands legally, a remediation plan for the site must be made along with ongoing monitoring of the contaminated area(s) that the owner must usually continue to handle unless a new buyer agrees to take the task on as part of the deal, explains Michelle Comerford, a project director and leader of the Supply Chain Practice at Biggins Lacy Shapiro & Co.
