To rehabilitate damaged sites where development is complicated by environmental contamination and to reduce pressure on undeveloped land.
Develop on a site documented as contaminated by means of an ASTM E1903-97 Phase II Environmental Site Assessment or a local voluntary cleanup program. Projects outside the U.S. may use a local equivalent to ASTM E1903-97 Phase II Environmental Site Assessment.
Develop on a site defined as a brownfield by a local, state, tribal or national government agency, whichever is most stringent.
