In the lead up to construction commencing on Australia’s tallest tower STH BNK By Beulah, we’re thrilled to have partnered with Sydney-based community vertical farming business, Greenspace, to temporarily activate the existing site into a 200sqm pop-up micro farm during the preparation phase for construction.

Greenspace is known for transforming under-utilised spaces within cities into commercial vertical farms called ‘Macro farms.’ This partnership will be instrumental in exploring the future of urban agriculture while raising awareness to the public about sustainable local farming within city centres.

Within the Southbank site, various micro herbs, salads and flowers are planted to bring urban farming to the city centre, with local businesses benefiting including ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, Deloitte, Compass, Foodbuy, Hyatt, Sheraton, W hotels, Novotel, Zurich Insurance, Trippas White Group and Two Good Co.

Beulah’s Executive Director Adelene Teh said the collaboration signifies a shift towards sustainable, community-centric collaborations that blend nature with urban sophistication. “Vertical farms are the way of the future and at Beulah, we are continually researching, exploring and experimenting to understand how present and future generations will live. This collaboration highlights our sincere commitment to a more sustainable future, one where agriculture and retail can seamlessly intertwine to create community-wide benefits.”

The collaboration and experiment with Greenspace forms part of STH BNK By Beulah’s vision of exploring the future of retail, programming and new business models. Additionally, our vision is to integrate community vertical farming into the completed project as a means of supplying healthy, organic and low carbon fresh food to residents and workers of STH BNK By Beulah. This would also act as an educational tool for the next generation, teaching children about the importance of fresh produce and the supply chain of transporting food into our homes.
