Brownfields are abandoned, idled or under-utilized properties where redevelopment is hindered by real or perceived environmental contamination. The Brownfields Property Reuse Act of 1997 and subsequent Brownfield Revitalization Act of 2002 paved the way for developers to put Brownfield sites back into use. Mid-Atlantic is an industry leader in the Brownfield arena and provides a variety of Brownfield services. We have been the lead consultant on acquisitions that have resulted in over $750-million in development value.
