A brownfield is land that was previously used for industrial or commercial purposes, and which may have low concentrations of hazardous waste or pollution. Brownfields have been cleaned up and used for office space for startup businesses, new shopping centers, city parks, or even upscale housing. Pittsburgh is one city with several examples of brownfields that have been converted into useful land.
Many landscape architecture firms are designing public parks and open spaces on old industrial/brownfield sites. I attached a link to a Virgina based studio who specializes in post industrial sites. Projects such as the Highline in NYC and the future Bloomingdale Trail in Chicago are also two examples of linear sites that were once used for industrial purposes.
