Infill and urban development is becoming increasingly popular as the Millennial generation choses to live and work in walkable, new urbanist communities. Despite that trend, a greenfield site is much easier to sell and less costly to develop than a brownfield-infill site.

A greenfield site with all the infrastructure in place may sell for $45,000 an acre while a competing brownfield site may need to sell for twice that much to cover the considerable costs of environmental assessment and remediation and demolition. In many instances a public-sector partner is needed to help drive down the costs of the brownfield site to make it compatible cost-wise with a greenfield site.
