Bleutech Park, an ambitious $7.5 billion real estate project scheduled to break ground in December 2019, will be completely comprised of net-zero buildings, where the total amount of energy used by each building on an annual basis is equal to the amount of renewable energy created onsite. 

The goal is to create an insular mini-city and featuring automated multi-functional designs, renewable energy sources, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, robotics, “super trees”, self-healing concrete structures and more high-tech gadgetry straight from a science-fiction movie.

The exterior of buildings will become giant solar panels through the use of photo-voltaic glass, supporting the park’s commitment to zero carbon emissions. Even the flooring in the new property will have the ability to capture and reuse the energy of human movement to be used for things like heating, cooling, lighting and electricity. A 95 percent reduction in imported water consumption will be achieved by connecting the park’s buildings to a network of “super trees”.

The privately funded project, made possible by institutional and private equity investments, will take six years to complete, but promises to redefine the mixed-use environment with workforce housing, office and retail space, ultra-luxury residential, hotel and entertainment.

Green technology will showcase energy generation and storage, waste-heat recovery, on-site water purification and waste treatment as well as localized air cleaning.

The developer describes the mini-city as a “high-tech biome” that aims to change the future of design and give life to new technologies.
