New York-based Gotham Greens announced today that it will make Great Western Industrial Park (GWIP), The Broe Group’s 3,000-acre master planned development, its new home in Denver. The 150,000-square-foot state-of-the-art climate-controlled, high-tech hydroponic greenhouse facility will allow the company to grow and deliver fresh salad greens and herbs for grocery retailers, restaurants, and foodservice customers throughout the Mountain West region, including Whole Foods Market, King Soopers, Safeway, and Sprouts.

Colorado has a deep agricultural history and, as a Colorado company, The Broe Group is proud to bring a new generation of agriculture to one of the nation’s top-producing agricultural counties with the technology to feed generations of future Coloradans,” said Broe Real Estate Group Senior Vice President Dean Brown. “Gotham Greens’ sustainable indoor farming operation offers an exciting and more sustainable agricultural source for the Rocky Mountain region’s produce needs.”

Gotham Greens’ hydroponic growing technology enables the company to grow and harvest fresh produce year-round while using up to 95 percent less water and 97 percent less land than conventional farming.

Over the past decade, Gotham Greens has helped to pioneer and popularize the greenhouse-grown produce category among retailers and consumers alike, as well as advance innovative greenhouse development throughout the U.S.,” said Eric Haley, co-founder and CFO of Gotham Greens and a Denver-area native, “We are excited to expand our presence in Colorado and the Mountain West region at GWIP.”

Gotham Greens’ GWIP location is generating in excess of 100 construction jobs and is projected to bring 55 jobs and more than $15 million in company investment to Northern Colorado once complete. Phase one of the greenhouse, measuring approximately 150,000 square feet, will open in 2022 and join the company’s national network of greenhouses located in New York, Illinois, Rhode Island, Maryland, Colorado, and California, as well as recently announced projects in Texas and Georgia.

Scott James, chair of the Weld Board of County Commissioners, stated, “We are excited to help Gotham Greens bring new jobs, new investment, and new sustainable agricultural practices to Weld County. The collaboration on this project between Windsor, Weld County, and the Great Western Industrial Park reflects the strong partnerships and work being done in the region. We also want to thank Upstate Colorado Economic Development for their work with our public and private sector partners to bring Gotham Greens to Northern Colorado.”

Gotham Greens addition to GWIP coincides with the park’s western phase of development that will add 2,000 new homes and 50 acres of retail/commercial development within the new Windsor Village project. GWIP’s dual rail served eastern development is home to innovators across diversified industries that range from the wind energy pioneer Vestas to manufacturing pioneers Intersand, Owens Illinois, and the park’s legacy tenants, Kodak and Carestream.
