US (PA): Marketing campaign started to fill vacant Fifth Season facility

The facility formerly used by indoor vertical farming startup Fifth Season, which shuttered last October, is now undergoing a marketing campaign to bring in a new lease holder or a new owner.

In marketing materials produced by commercial real estate firm CBRE Inc., the "fully equipped state-of-the-art facility" located at 1050 Talbot Ave. in Braddock is listed as having over 58,000 square feet of space.

An automated storage and retrieval system, which can be removed, and an automated building management system for heating, ventilation and air conditioning are listed as facility amenities, as is the solar microgrid system that Fifth Season had installed on-site weeks before its closure.

CBRE described the building as a "vertical farming/food facility" and included a sketch of an architectural floor plan outlining various spaces that could be used for growing, producing or storing food products, as well as spaces for preparing, processing and packaging food goods for distribution.

Jason Cannon, a senior vice president at CBRE, did not immediately respond to a request for comment, nor did Shawn Fox, president of RDC Inc., the company that owns the building.
