A brownfield is a former commercial or industrial property that has lost value because of real or perceived environmental contamination. This could include manufacturing sites, gas stations, dry cleaners, or older building structures and others. Many current establishments such as the BOK Center, Guthrie Green, and the planned BMX Training Facility were developed on brownfield sites with assistance and support of city, state, and federal government.

If you’re interested in benefiting from rehabilitating a brownfield site, please see information on our Revolving Loan Fund and other resources. Apply for a Targeted Brownfields Assessment by contacting us at:
