Method Products and Gotham Greens have announced a groundbreaking partnership to build a rooftop farm in Chicago.

It is deemed to be the world’s largest rooftop farm and will be built at Method’s new manufacturing plant in the Pullman neighborhood on Chicago’s south side, according to a news release.

Method’s plant, designed by William McDonough + Partners, is anticipated to be the world’s first LEED-Platinum certified manufacturing plant in its industry.

Gotham Greens will design, build and operate a state-of-the-art agricultural greenhouse facility on the roof of the plant. The greenhouse will produce up to 1 million pounds of fresh, sustainably grown, pesticide-free produce annually.

The facility is scheduled to be operational in the spring of 2015.
