Chicago, Illinois

Vacant for over 40 years, this site on the west side of Chicago will be reborn as an urban farm. PLNTR LLC will partner with Edge Alliance to grow and provide fresh produce to local residents, restaurants, and specialty grocers. The design features two shipping containers, an interpretation of the traditional barn and silo, which will include a walk-up farm stand. Behind the farm stand will be a 4,000 SF greenhouse. The construction will be managed pro-bono by LG Construction + Development.
