Creating a Local Food System in Abandoned Buildings

"The Plant is a project combining adaptive industrial reuse and aquaponics to create Chicago’s first vertical farm."

The plan is to use abandoned buildings to create a local food system in Chicago… moving the food production to where the food is consumed in the city.

Innovated techniques are being tested to create less waste. “The whole project is about closing waste loops. So that nothing that leaves this facility, but food.”
