Farm Plot & Boat Efficiency[]

If a player has crops waiting to be harvested or boats waiting to be unloaded, but cannot be done because the goods storage is full, this results in "harvesting inefficiency". This can be solved by increasing the storage limit by building one of the various storage buildings. This will increase the efficiency of farm plots and boats in the city by keeping all crops and boats harvested and replanted instead of sitting idle because of inadequate storage. This benefits the player by allowing them to dedicate less land to farm plots and spend less energy harvesting.


Grass Roots Greenhouse-icon

Greenhouses saves space by having the ability to hold up to 14 Farm Plots in a 4x4 area. Buying and upgrading a Grass Roots Greenhouse will automatically include the plots, which cannot be taken out.

Building Storage[]

To help players from having crowded cities, building storage reduces this problem by storing many buildings within one building. See their respective pages for more information.


Housing: Neighborhoods[]

Neighborhoods hold housing and can only store 15 specific residences.

Businesses: Malls[]

File:Mall 5-icon.png

Malls hold businesses and gives a payout bonus to each stored business. The bonus increases with each floor. The Mall and the Second Mall can store any type of business. The Food Court can only store Restaurants and the Fashion Center can only store Fashion Boutiques.

Community Buildings[]

City Center-icon

These buildings are given out through goals and each player can have only one of each.

Goods Storage[]

The Storage Facility holds goods storage, acting as storage within storage. It is found under facilities in the goods section of the build menu. It can hold up to 15 items when fully upgraded.


Deluxe Warehouse-icon

The Warehouse or Deluxe Warehouse can hold most buildings and decorations. When stored here these items are in essence taken out of the game. The buildings placed in other types of storage are still in play and can be collected from.

The latest limit is 300 items. This new limit also adds a special interface that can be used even away from the Warehouse, including in Downtown. (See: Zynga's Guide to "More Storage!")

Also: Certain buildings and decorations, when Removed, will automatically be stored in your Inventory. Some of these may need to be completely rebuilt, or re-staffed. Always be careful whenever using the Remove function, as some items are permanantly deleted and can never be recovered.

Zynga is adding the ability to place one building on top of the other, forcing the bottom one into storage. Read about it at Zynga's Guide. They refer to it as 'Place and Scoop'.
