The Los Angeles Business Journal features a special section: "Real Estate - Toxic Turnaround: Fixing Polluted Properties." The section is led by a feature article by real estate writer Elizabeth Hayes, who outlines the issue: Unlike the pristine land in outlying areas, infill sites are often oozing with the remnants of LA's industrial past -- chemicals, metals, and other substances left behind by decades of oil refining, auto manufacturing, metal plating, and other Old Economy activities.
