The Las Vegas park will showcase onsite energy generation and storage, localised air cleansing, onsite waste treatment, waste-heat recovery and water purification for office, retailers, residents, and hotel and entertainment occupants.

Building exteriors will have photovoltaic glass, transforming them into solar energy generators. Each building will be 100% grid-independent.

Advanced floors will be used to generate energy from human movement and buildings will be connected to supertrees allowing a 95% reduction in imported water consumption and an opportunity for improved biodiversity.

Bleutech Park Properties is partnering with construction firm Martin-Harris Construction and technology company Cisco.

The project "…will push the envelope of innovation and bring together technology solutions that once seemed like pure science fiction.

"The convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Cities in a project like this challenges the way we define both of those solutions. It opens our thinking to what is truly possible and reveals just how expansive the connected communities concept really is," said: Mike Grigsby, with Cisco's Smart+Connected Communities group.

Bleutech Park Properties, Inc., CTIO, Bertrand Dano, reiterated: “… Robotics will be an essential part of the technology ecosystem providing 365/24/7 security using biometrics and other state-of-the-art technologies, adding an unsurpassed level of security in real-time, to both residents and visitors.
