On September 3, 2015, Stephen Armstrong will moderate a mid-day panel titled “New Approaches to Marketing and Redeveloping Surplus Properties” at the 16th National Brownfields Training Conference, to be held at the Hilton Chicago, 720 S. Michigan Ave., from September 2-4. The panel description provides:

More and more, managers of environmentally impaired surplus properties are looking beyond ‘bottom line’ issues like price and liability concerns to other values when searching for prospective purchasers of their properties. Such values can include, but not be limited to, community and local government acceptance of the prospective purchaser’s plans for redevelopment, the potential for the redevelopment to generate jobs or otherwise benefit the local economy, and environmental considerations. This panel session will focus on innovative approaches to assist managers in the search to identify potential purchasers whose plans for these properties will meet these criteria, including an approach developed by the Association for Redevelopment Initiatives (ARI).

The panel will feature the following speakers:

  • Bruce Rasher, RACER Trust
  • Chad Meyer, NorthPoint Development
  • Jim Schaeffer, BP
  • Leonard von Rommel, Brownfield Renewal
