Sustainable Practical Urban Revitalization
About SPUR Institute
The SPUR Institute was established to develop a research, education, training, and incubation platform that will continuously support the SPUR concept while also extending its reach. The SPUR Institute will be a place where managers and staff of SPUR facilities will be trained and certified in production operations.
SPUR Concept Mission
Sustainable Practical Urban Revitalization (SPUR) is accomplished through a multi-purpose real estate concept in which SPUR enterprises are designed to address the issues of social inequality and human health, along with providing environmental and financial sustainability. Coordinating the objectives of the residential, commercial, and indoor vertical farming services allows SPUR to maximize the societal benefits arising from integrating these purposes into a single location. This combination creates a self-sustaining affordable residential complex created to service a specific community.
