Brownfields are abandoned or under-used, contaminated sites, in rural or urban areas, that require a complex initiative to restore them to clean, safe and productive property. These cases often require a substantial investment of time and money, but can typically be returned to a fully functioning capacity.
Funding may be available through the IEPA or federal EPA, and Gabriel can help guide municipalities through the grant application process.
Gabriel also works with private purchasers to reclaim progressive use of a building or land. Often these newly clean properties can be resold at a significant profit to the investor.
