Groningarden proposes developing the strategic site as an agricultural area. It claims that, with new technologies, this area can provide the entire city with food. Fields are situated on the roofs of existing halls. A market square is situated along Hoendiep where the goods produced can be traded. This square can also accommodate events and exhibitions. As an exception to the predominately low development with green roofs, a sixty metre-high tower, named 'Skyfarm' stands along Hoendiep canal. The tower is a stack of hothouses where the latest agricultural technologies can be explored.
