Locally-grown food in the middle of New York City

This page in:

New York Magazine asked four architects to design whatever they would like for a full city block of space with no clients to worry about. One design offered was a vertical farm, complete with water tanks and each floor would be used for the cultivation of a different crop. Amale Andraos, of Work AC, the firm responsible for the intriguing idea, said in the article that they “are interested in urban farming and the notion of trying to make our cities more sustainable by cutting the miles [food travels].”

Ok, maybe that’s taking sustainable design to an extreme; does anyone have more eco-friendly (and preferably profitable) ideas?
