The Sustainable City
The Sustainable City provides owners with unique and highly attractive benefits. It demonstrates that luxury living is possible while following sustainability standards. The City will generate much of its own electricity through city-wide and rooftop solar panels. The inspiring architectural designs take into consideration the natural aspects of sunlight, wind and orientation in order to improve air quality and ensure a cooler city microclimate.
Active lifestyles are very much encouraged here. Over 50% of the City consists of parks and landscaped open spaces all linked together with pedestrian-only streets and sikkas. Places of recreation include:
The Development promotes the idea of urban agriculture with the inclusion of a 3 hectare farm running across the City’s central spine. This community farm accommodates 38,000 sqft (3,500 sqm) of Biodome Greenhouses dedicated to the growing of fruits, herbs and vegetables allowing residents to enjoy local year round healthy food.
Residents will have the opportunity to participate in community farming groups and a Community Supported Agriculture food box program that will see fresh produce and trays of herbs weekly delivered door to door.
The landscape in our city is not just for beautification but following the principles of permaculture, strives to have more than one purpose such as creating a cooler microclimate, producing food, cleaning the air, creating habitat or stabilizing and fixing nitrogen in the soils.
We look at our city as a living laboratory - it is so full of innovation and examples of sustainable living, that it will be constantly presenting opportunities for research, learning and inspiration on how we can live more lightly on Earth. Educational facilities will include a green, nature inspired curriculum elementary school and a diploma/degree-level Sustainability Excellence Centre. Learning at The Sustainable City is not just limited to the classroom.
