Redevelopment is often considered inherently “sustainable” or “green” in that it involves reusing an already developed site, rather than developing elsewhere on a Greenfield location. But are there ways to make redevelopment even more sustainable? This session will explore how communities can pursue more innovative approaches to redevelopment, ranging from holistic regenerative design to the more prescribed LEED-ND to local brownfield reclamation efforts.
