Microsoft Co-founder Bill Gates Is Building His Own ‘Smart City’: At the start, I need to ask you one important question! Just assume that you are the world’s richest man and have plenty of money with you, what will you do? Of course, you will do something crazy!
The world’s richest man, Bill Gates has decided to something extraordinary this time. Recently, the co-founder of Microsoft bought 25,000 acres of land in southwest Arizona to build an intelligent city which will be full of offices, shops, schools, and homes.
The new project is actually owned by Belmont Partners which is one of investment companies of Bill Gates’. The purchase of land cost around $80 million.
The idea behind this project is to turn the purchased land into a futuristic smart city which will be known as Belmont. The land would be able to accommodate around 80,000 residential units after leaving 3,800 acres land for commercial usage and 470 acres for public schools.
According to Emeritus Ronald Schott who is the council of Arizona technology, Bill Gates is good at innovation and this time he has picked a “Good Spot”
The development of the city will have all the necessary elements to transform it into an intelligent and technological place. High-speed Internet deployments are planned throughout the region of 25,000 acres, special systems for autonomous cars and structure to deploy the Internet of Things.
Right now there is no information available regarding when the construction of Bill Gates’ city of the future will start. However, it will be worth to wait.
