Urban Organics has been working on the building for more than a year. Urban Organics' Fred Haberman says eventually you'll see massive racks of leafy greens fertilized naturally by tilapia that will be held in 3,500-gallon tanks.

The business plans to supply local markets and schools beginning this fall.

WCCO-TV says the City of St. Paul and Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems are involved in the project.
