The purpose of this thesis is to demonstrate the existence of a link between historic preservation and brownfield redevelopment. A selection of policy frameworks and case studies are discussed in order to provide support for the proposed link. Based on analyses of frameworks and case studies, a set of guidelines are developed as a suggested methodology for preserving the historic and visual characteristics of brownfield sites while simultaneously reintegrating them back into communities. The guidelines are then applied to a site where no redevelopment activity has taken place. Recommendations for further exploration into the link between historic preservation and brownfield redevelopment follow in the conclusion.
