3. Webinar Brownfields 2017: Review & Preview // Brownfields Redevelopment, The Opel/GM Case in Bochum/Germany
Redevelopment of brownfields, former coal minig and stell production sites, is in the Ruhr-Region of Germany daily business since 1958. But the redevelopment in the second generation (The Opel site was former coal mining area Dannenbaum) is very special : a new company with the fomer landlord as shareholder, very short development time, integration in the city redevelopment are highlights. Can the case OPEL/GM in Bochum also best practise for USA, special for Detroit ? That could be a good issue to discuss.
The authors Ingo Quaas and Kersten Roselt developed with their teams a method to optimize the redevelopment of contaminated, derelict properties. The approach is based on identification and monetary valuation of liability risks and waste disposal uncertainties.
