The City of Westbrook in partnership with The Day Brothers, LLC has an exciting new mixed-use development project that will be breaking ground this Winter in the heart of its downtown. This project will be Maine’s first commercial urban vertical farm adjacent to a structure combining ground floor retail space, residential units, and a 4-level, free covered public parking garage. This dynamic new development captures Maine’s entrepreneurial spirit.
