Flying Cars in Tonapah

Well, maybe! If billionaire Bill Gates and his investment group, Cascade Investment, have anything to say about it! They just plunked down $80,000,000 for a stake in a 24,800 acre development called, Belmont. And there is probably no one on the planet capable of achieving this dream other than Mr. Gates. The plan is for 80,000 homes, 3,800 acres of industrial, office and retail space, 470 acres for public schools and 3,400 acres of open land. The project is designed to be a forward – thinking community with a communication and infrastructure spine that embraces cutting-edge technology, designed around high speed digital networks, data centers, new manufacturing technologies and distribution models, autonomous vehicles and autonomous logistic hubs. Whew! Is this important to us? You bet. A project like this puts Arizona and particularly the West Valley on the map…Globally. The opportunities that this might offer us are enormous and the new businesses and idea centers that will follow it will offer even more. Meaningful career opportunities will abound! Follow these pages….we will keep you informed of the progress of this amazing project!
