LEED ND: Built Project | v3 - LEED 2009

Brownfields redevelopment

SLLc2 | Possible 2 points


To encourage the reuse of land by developing sites that are complicated by environmental contamination, thereby reducing pressure on undeveloped land.

Option 1. Brownfield sites (1 point)

Locate the project on a site, part or all of which is documented as contaminated (by means of an ASTM E1903-97 Phase II Environmental Site Assessment, a local equivalent for projects outside the U.S., or a local Voluntary Cleanup Program), or on a site defined as a brownfield by a local, state, or national government agency; and remediate site contamination such that the controlling government authority approves the protective measures and/or cleanup as effective, safe, and appropriate for the future use of the site.


Option 2. High-priority redevelopment areas (2 points)

Achieve the requirements in Option 1;


Locate the project in one of the following high-priority redevelopment areas: EPA National Priorities List, Federal Empowerment Zone, Federal Enterprise Community, Federal Renewal Community, Department of Justice Weed and Seed Strategy Community, Department of the Treasury Community Development Financial Institutions Fund Qualified Low-Income Community (a subset of the New Markets Tax Credit Program), or the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Qualified Census Tract (QCT) or Difficult Development Area (DDA), or a local equivalent program administered at the national level for projects outside the United States.
