Google city maybe a reality
Google would build a high-tech city in the outskirts of Toronto. Yes, you read that right. The internet giant is planning to transform a disused area into a green and technology-driven city.
Google’s company Sidewalk has been given some space in Toronto based Quayside waterfront area to develop the city. It’s still not finalised but plans are in the pipeline. There will be more discussions and public consultations. The project has proved controversial for a number of reasons including the fact Sidewalk wanted to put data-collecting sensors around the city that it would oversee. This data collecting proposal was rejected.
Sidewalk said it would provide a mix of offices, retail spaces, homes and high-tech solutions for urban problems like traffic and waste.
Other wacky features include heated roads and an underground delivery system.
