Gather + Grow

The Gather + Grow project is a mixed-use building campus featuring two residential buildings, a market plaza, and an aquaponic growing operation. The project takes advantage of a unique pocket of breweries in Ballard’s industrial zone to create a synergistic water and energy district. This collection of breweries, the strong industry presence, and Ballard’s active shopping and dining district make this site in Ballard the ideal urban environment for a state-of-the-art aquaponic building designed around the principles of the food-water-energy nexus. The intent of the Gather + Grow project is to bring community, commerce, and industry together to transform the local food economy.
