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. It’s called the ‘Neom City.’
The ‘mega-city’ 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 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, a broader vision-oriented project aiming to uplift the whole area. Entrepreneurship, employment, entertainment, and housing are all in one place. This is the vision for Riverside’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.Sharjeel Sohaib | Startempire Wire
