Brownfields

Overview

Abandoned commercial and industrial properties – often once a vital part of neighborhoods and local economies – pose difficult challenges for vulnerable communities. Yet with the right investments, brownfields can be a significant catalyst in retooling underutilized areas suffering from disinvestment. At Skeo, we believe that golden opportunities don’t just happen – they are created by aligning the right people, in the right place, at the right time. We bring people together in new ways to forge solutions that are deeply respectful of place, local history and community priorities.

We help community-based projects move quickly from planning to action, identifying funding resources, expanding networks and leveraging priority opportunities. Our approach builds on the strength of place to craft a redevelopment concept that reflects site conditions, regional market opportunities and stakeholder perspectives. Most importantly, we collaborate with partners to translate the vision into an actionable roadmap to increase local prosperity and quality of life.
