Urban Farming takes root in CRE

Bas Oldenburg • 12/31/2018
A new trend is taking root in commercial real estate that has the potential to positively impact millions across the globe: urban farming.

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.
