Recycling the City: The Use and Reuse of Urban Land
Rosalind Greenstein, Yesim Sungu-Eryilmaz
Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, 2004 - Business & Economics - 260 pages
This collection of essays examines underutilized, abandoned, and vacant urban land within political, economic, institutional, and policy contexts. The 11 chapters raise the essential questions: Is vacant land an opportunity or an obstacle? Are brownfields a legacy of prior industrial wealth, or of illegal and dangerous contamination? Is a land inventory vital to community needs for future growth, or the symbol of political shortsightedness? Is the reclamation of land the first step in an urban turnaround, or a giveaway of local assets?
