final proposal


1. Existing food infrastructure

2. Need for employement

incoming density

farmers markets and grocery stores

hunt’s point

7.6% unemployed

proposed morphology to provide 50% more housing with 30 percent affrdable housing

regional supply strategies

food consumed 461.44 acres for population of 6592

500lbs of veggies

production

where the food is grown, raised, or manufactured. the goal is to produce 20% of food requirement on site thrpugh urban farms divided in private, semi private, community gardens.

distribution

movement of food from the point of origin to the point of consumption, through various types of suppliers and distributors. The bike delivery system in the neighbrhood provides sustainable system.

0.07 acres

per capita food consumption per year

percent of agricultural produce brought in externally

3. proposed food infrastructure projected population growth of the district

13083 per sq. mile

8177 per sq.mile

projected density by 2050

732.69 acres of food consumption required by 2050 for a population of 10467 provided 71 acres, 10 % of total required

consumption

where food is purchased by or served to a consumer. Points of consumption may include supermarkets, farmers markets that we introduce.

2.75 acres in red hook (added value) =40,000 pounds =567 people 2.5 acres of broklyn grange= 50,000 pounds= 600 people

Required for population of 2050- 52.5 acres, proposed urban farms provide 71 acres!
