Brownfield Redevelopment

Working collaboratively with regulatory agencies and property owners, we have developed a new paradigm for Brownfield redevelopment and cleanup. Cleanups are market-driven and our solutions drive successful transactions. “Can’t” isn’t in our vocabulary.

Brownfields are sites with known or suspected contamination caused by hazardous substances, pollutants or contaminants, petroleum or petroleum products, or controlled substances. Brownfields sites can be underused or abandoned land, and opportunities for economic and community development are restricted. MFA designs and implements effective Brownfield solutions that maximize our clients’ returns on investment while minimizing liabilities. When properly conceived and implemented, Brownfield redevelopment can protect public health and the environment, increase investment, and create long-term improvements in housing, jobs, recreational opportunities, open space, and public facilities.

Our Thoughts
As we continue to stress the value of urban infill and avoid the costs of sprawl, the thoughtful adaptive re-use of our many brownfield sites becomes even more important. These properties offer the potential of increased economic activity and most often significant community building.
