You got to love the entrepreneurial spirit. Wave Self-Storage facility in downtown St. Lewis found a new way to generate extra revenue.
The facility recently signed a new tenant, Urban Harvest, that transformed the rooftop of the two-story building into an urban farm.
Urban Harvest installed a green roof system on the entire roof of the self-storage facility. They are using part of the roof for rooftop soil farming. They also are using raised beds for a community garden, hydroponic towers, container gardening and a greenhouse.
In conclusion...Wave Self Storage is cashing in on a number of benefits from its new tenant. Urban Harvest pays rent for its rooftop space at Wave Self Storage—close to $10,000 per year.
