A rooftop in New York has been transformed into a 42,000 square-foot farm. The impressive and unlikely fully functioning urban farm is part of a $10 million renovation project in Long Island City.

Bromley Caldari Architects led the project and worked alongside Acumen Capital Partners & Brooklyn Grange to completely transform the 300,000 square-foot building, which is now home to a plethora of media, design, printing and architecture businesses.

Close to one million pounds of soil was used to cover the roof, making it ones of the biggest agricultural systems on the planet. The farm provides a source for organically grown local food, and also provides a peaceful haven for the building's occupants to relax and escape the bustle of the city.
