A big tourism trend is showcasing special, one-of-a-kind locations that are off the beaten path, and The Plant is an excellent option to feature on your tour routes! The building opened in 1925 as a meatpacking operation converting in the 21st century into a unique research and production facility focused on sustainable farming. Here are some highlights on this free, guided tour of The Plant:
- Explore innovative tenant laboratories and spaces sustainably creating food.
- Learn about the building's transformation from meatpacking to The Plant,
- Discover the neighborhood's fascinating history in the building's Packingtown Museum, and
- See amazing design features, including the rooftop winter garden.
After the tour, CTPA members can hang out and get to know each other better in the building's Whiner Beer Co. Taproom. Many of their beverage offerings are produced on-site, and the BBQ is quite good! Mixer participants pay for their food and drinks.
