‘City of the Future’ to be built in West Valley
Nov. 13, 2017
A major investment from a company associated with Bill Gates is bringing a “smart city” to the Valley.
The $80 million investment goes towards developing a new city 45 minutes west of downtown Phoenix. Plans include high-speed network infrastructure, autonomous workers and vehicles, reduced pollution and multiple data centers. Arizona Republic reporter Catherine Reagor is in the process of looking through property records, and says many of the plans are incredibly unique.
“They’re really digging in,” says Raegor. “[They’re] not revolving around commuting to Phoenix, not revolving around cars… they’re very high-tech plans.”
