Brownfields and Redevelopment

Development in an urban core frequently means redeveloping or repurposing land and buildings in order to meet current market needs. Previously developed properties, especially commercial or industrial properties, may be affected by environmental contamination, outdated or rundown structures, and other development constraints. The City of Cleveland recognizes the need to invest in the redevelopment of brownfield sites as a key part of furthering the City’s economy.
 
The Department of Economic Development has a number of programs designed to assist with the challenges and costs of brownfield redevelopment. Our Brownfield Redevelopment team brings a creative approach and a record of success at combining multiple funding sources to move challenging projects forward.
 
Additionally, Cuyahoga County, the State of Ohio, and the Federal government have resources devoted to brownfield redevelopment. Our staff can work with you and our partners to bring these resources to your project.
