Urban Farming takes root in CRE

Banner

A new trend is taking root in commercial real estate that has the potential to positively impact millions across the globe: urban farming.

Using hydroponic, aeroponic and aquaponic technology and LED lighting systems, urban farming operations create controlled environments that can potentially boost food production massively while simultaneously reducing the negative ecological impacts of agriculture.

Urban farming and indoor cropping operations don’t just hold a massive societal benefit – they offer an extremely eco-friendly solution to a number of critical ecological challenges. Plus, it is a great solution for developers and landlords who are increasingly seeking to be eco-friendly and provide greater amenities to their residents.

As the trend of urban farming continues to flourish and further expand, there will be a tangible impact on the existing food supply and distribution chain. We expect indoor cropping operations to be a major growth industry in the years ahead.
