One big test will be a 140-acre parcel east of Miller Park. The city acquired the former rail yard in July from CMC Heartland Partners of Chicago and is using grant money to clean up contaminants, with the first acreage expected to be available for development by the spring of 2005... One of the most intriguing possibilities: The foundations of demolished buildings might be incorporated into a storm-water management system. 'It's a form of urban archaeology,' Wenk told me, 'revealing those enigmatic, ghost landscapes.' "
