Ontario plans to build a 370-acre new city park, reports Steve Scauzillo. Known as The Great Park, the proposed project is approximately 340 acres with a length of 3.7 miles and encompasses roughly 400 acres, and extends over 3-1/2 miles.

370-Acre Next to Ontario Ranch

Ontario Ranch is next to the proposed 370-Acres Ontario Great Park, an adjacent community that will eventually be home to 47,000 residential units, plus office, commercial, and industrial space.

“In later phases, development would include athletic fields, places for historical and cultural exhibits, museums, community facilities and areas for social gatherings, such as a farmers markets and pop-up dining spaces.”

Inspiring Developments in the Inland Empire and Around the World

We reported in September last year that Saudi Arabia is developing a mega-project in real estate development. Its called the ‘Neom City‘.

The โ€˜mega-cityโ€™ project in Saudi Arabia has plans to have flying cars and other advanced technologies. The city will be deep in a desert bordering the Red Sea. Until now, the country has pledged $500 billion to build the city of the future.

Per details obtained by the Wall Street Journal, the city will have artificial rain, a fake moon, robotic maids, and holographic teachers. Only time will tell how much of it is useful and actually contributes to advancing tech in the country. NEOM will be 33 times the size of New York City, according to Business Insider.

Another development we reported on is ‘build-to-rent’ homes in California. Irvine-based land brokerage firm The Hoffman Company has sold 26-acres of land that Sancerra Communities and STG Capital Partners will use to build a rent-only townhome community in Southwest Riverside County, California.

Lastly, you may read about the Riverside Innovation District, which is a broader vision-oriented project that aims to uplift the whole area. Entrepreneurship, employment, entertainment and housing, all in one place. This is the vision for Riversideโ€™s Innovation District.

The idea behind Riverside Innovation District is to make the most of the existing assets in the City to attract private investment and make the county a hub for startups and entrepreneurs.
