Massive Rooftop Greenhouse in Southie Getting Underway

A big-time development on more than 28 acres of Southie waterfront at the Boston Cargo Terminal is set to break ground in the next few weeks. The project predates the Great Recession, which threw a hefty wrench into the plans. Now things are a go: three new commercial warehouses, a new run of Harbor Walk and 160 parking spaces.

The development is also set to include a 120,000-square-foot roof-top greenhouse run by Montreal-based Lufa Farms. Above is its flagship farm in the Canadian city. Also, just to be clear: The groundbreaking expected in the next few weeks (no firm date has been set) is the third such scheduled for the project; the last two were postponed. Fingers crossed.
