The national Phoenix Awards for Excellence in Brownfield Redevelopment are awarded annually to individuals and groups working to transform abandoned industrial areas so they can be put to to productive new uses. The 2008 Phoenix Awards were presented in Detroit, Michigan. The award winners remediated and redeveloped more than 1,350 acres of land, which is now used for medical research and medical centers, large mixed use communities, a fueling station, revitalized manufacturing plants, retail and commercial centers, green buildings, restored waterfronts, and trails for tourist destinations.
