VERTICAL HARVEST MAINE
Vertical Harvest is coming to Maine! In collaboration with Harriman Architects, The Day Brothers, and the City of Westbrook, we are designing and developing Vertical Harvest’s largest farm yet. At nearly 70,000 sf and four stories high, this project will yield 1,000,000 pounds of fresh local produce per year for the surrounding communities. In addition to food production, it will provide community gathering space, retail, and fifty full-time equivalent jobs for underemployed populations in the area. The new development will replace an existing empty parking lot with a public parking garage, apartment housing, and the Vertical Harvest facility. GYDE and Vertical Harvest are working together to optimize production yields and process efficiency through procedure-driven space planning and circulation studies. GYDE Architects is proud to be involved in the design of architecture with strong social impact.
