Gotham Greens Opens 60,000 Square Foot Rooftop Farm in Hollis, Queens

Brooklyn-based Gotham Greens designs, builds and maintains rooftop farms and urban greenhouse facilities all across the City since getting off the ground in 2011.

The newest venture from the urban farmers is a massive 60,000 square foot rooftop farm that sits atop the old Ideal Toy Company factory on Jamaica Avenue in Hollis, Queens.

Gotham Greens’ third and largest New York City greenhouse facility is located in the Greater Jamaica neighborhood of Hollis, Queens. Spanning 60,000 square feet, the greenhouse […] grows over 5 million heads of fresh leafy greens each year for the New York City market. The climate controlled greenhouse employs advanced automated greenhouse technologies while demonstrating that urban agriculture can be more than a small scale gardening project but rather a robust food manufacturing business.
