Abstract A number of previous studies have compared the environmental performance of specific brownfield redevelopments with similar projects built on undeveloped greenfield sites, which often are located in less dense and less accessible areas. These studies generally examined a single brownfield or infill development and entailed extensive site-specific analysis. The comparison greenfields generally accommodated the same number of residential units and commercial square footage, but their designs typically used more acreage per employee or per residence and were less location efficient. A review of 12 of these studies concluded that the brownfield and infill developments result in significant environmental benefits compared to their greenfield counterparts (Appendix A). However, making broader quantitative assessments of other brownfield redevelopment around the country requires a methodology that is more easily transferable. This study tests an analytical approach to quantifying the environmental impacts of multiple redevelopment projects in a given municipal area in a manner that can be replicated in other regions. The method was applied to five cities and their surrounding areas-Seattle, Washington; Baltimore, Maryland; Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota; Emeryville, California; and Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. These municipal areas correspond approximately to metropolitan statistical areas as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau.
