Rooftop greenhouse under construction

May 23rd, 2015

Here in Hollis, Gotham Greens is constructing the 60,000-square-foot rooftop greenhouse pictured above. The company expects to grow more than 500 tons of hydroponic produce per year at this facility.

The building beneath the greenhouse was once part of the Ideal Toy Corporation's manufacturing complex. Founded by the American inventor of the teddy bear, Ideal produced many famous toys and games over the years, including Betsy Wetsy, the Magic 8 Ball, Mouse Trap, and the Rubik's Cube.
