Additional information
  • The project was conceived as a 'living laboratory' where innovation and entrepreneurship in urban technology come together to thrive.

  • The company behind the project, URB, has a 'zero carbon' vision and accordingly, the building is designed to offset its embodied carbon emissions from construction and operation.

  • The district is proposed to create 4,000 jobs in green urban tech, education and training as well as being a hub for venture capital companies to provide funding for entrepreneurs.

  • With a built up area of 140,000 square metres it would potentially be the world's largest urban tech district.
