brownfield

An abandoned, idle, or underused industrial or commercial facility where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination. Such sites have a lesser degree of contamination than Superfund sites. However, there is enough possibility of contamination to cause substantial concern to developers, investors, or others who might otherwise use the property.
