CAN (AB): Grower plans 180,000 sq. ft. cannabis greenhouse

Fifty First Parallel purchased five acres of land in the Sherring Business and Industrial Park where a 180,000 sq. ft. greenhouse is to be built in three phases.

Sonny Mottahed, the company’s CEO, says choosing Lethbridge to grow pot was an easy decision.

“We needed to find a jurisdiction that one, was receptive to the business, and two, had affordable electricity, natural gas rates, land rates, plus a supportive city council and lots of sunlight,” Mottahed said.

Ground is expected to break in early 2018 for phase one, which will consist of a 50,000 sq. ft. greenhouse made up of 12 growing rooms. It’s expected to produce 3,500 kg of cannabis per year.
