ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Developers hit a major construction milestone at a one-of-a-kind community.
All of the businesses’ buildings are constructed with shipping containers. The first set of shipping containers arrived on-site at Green Jeans Farmery on Friday.
Green Jeans Farmery is a community of local businesses anchored by Santa Fe Brewing Tasting Room.
Business owners are excited to be moving in.
“Originally it was just the concept and the idea. I loved it. I mean using a recycled product and building something new out of it. It’s a really innovative idea,” said Gabriel Amador, business owner.
Some of the other businesses will include Epiphiny Espresso and Bocadillos Slow Roasted Sandwiches. There will also be a hydroponic farm on site and businesses will be able to use the produce grown there.
They hope to be fully open by this summer.
