A Brownfield is well described in various definitions and supported the idea to redevelop while indentifying numerous benefits for the society. Further on, the existing literature covers a broad range of different aspects of the Brownfield redevelopment thus elaborating different features. Still at present, there is no overview of the Brownfield features from the perspective of the real estate that focuses on the physical characteristics of the place and legal - financial part of the property, two fundamental elements of the development. At first this paper contributes with the literature survey that was deployed based on this perspective. Additionally, it focuses on the features relevant for the Brownfield redevelopment that served as an input for the Fuzzy Delphi technique that derived from the traditional Delphi method and Fuzzy Set Theory. The survey was deployed among the experts that are grouped by specific goals and tasks. This paper aims to give an answer to the question if the different groups value the relevance of the Brownfield Redevelopment features same or not and what are they? Fuzzy Delphi technique is considered as an excellent tool to gather and abbreviate information for realizing the key features of the Brownfield redevelopment. This technique benefits on the operational dimension as well since accessing the relevant information through the huge database is often not accessible due to the different reasons.
