Despite its name, Brooklyn Grange did not actually exist in Brooklyn… until now.

Originally located on a 40,000 square foot rooftop in Long Island City, Queens (earning it the title of world’s largest rooftop farm), the commercial organic farm, which also has posts throughout the city, has announced plans to expand to its namesake borough. The the new location, on a rooftop in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard, will reportedly be even bigger than the one in Long Island City, clocking in at an impressive 45,000-square-foot-plus—more than doubling the farm’s total growing area.

Check out photos of the new rooftop on Brooklyn Grange’s Facebook page. Build-out is expected to begin this spring, with the new location open come summer.
