Bill Gates set to build his own brand new city

Arizona-based real estate investment firm, Belmont Partners, will be creating the new city just 45 minutes outside of Phoenix, in the West Valley. When completed, Belmont will join Arcosanti, an ecologically-inspired experimental town to the north of Phoenix, as one of the region's most high-profile planned communities.

10 thousand hectares of land in the USA state of Arizona bought the company, Belmont Partners, owned by billionaire, founder of Microsoft, bill gates.

The city will be built on a 25,000-acre plot in a remote area in Tonopah, around 50 miles (80 km) west of Phoenix.

The investment was made through a group controlled by Gates' investment firm Cascade Investment, which bought a stake in a 24,800-acre development in Belmont. It was recently announced that the co-founder of the Microsoft Corporation has bought upwards of 25,000 acres of land in Arizona to create a planned community. It would be able to accommodate around 80,000 residential units after leaving 3,800 acres for commercial space and 470 acres for public schools.

The proposed freeway I-11, which would connect Belmont to Las Vegas, makes the land an ideal spot for a new city, according to Ronald Schott, an expert at Arizona Technology Council.

The city will have a "communication and infrastructure spine that embraces cutting-edge technology", says Belmont Partners, designed around high-speed digital networks, data centres, new manufacturing technologies and distribution models, driverless vehicles, and autonomous logistics hubs.

While it has not been announced when construction will begin, or what the total cost will amount to, there is real excitement over the prospect of chiseling a new city of the future out of a remote plot of land.

"Bill Gates is known for innovation and those kind of things and I think he picked the right place".

"He's coming to Arizona". But it's hardly the first-India, with its quickly growing population and rapid adoption of new technologies like artificial intelligence, has already been working to build "smart cities" with similar aims.

Belmont Partners expressed that the land transformation would be like an unused-empty slate turned into a purposeful city standing on flexible structural design.
