“We believe that [when] you define a smart city, it’s all the things that Amazon for example would like to have through their RFP. If you read what the Saudis are doing, it’s technology-driven, it’s fiber-driven, it’s the way that buildings operate and communicate with one another. It’s the 22nd century of where we’re headed. It will be self-sustained, where you’ll have retail, hotels, residential. Everything will be walkable. You can live there, be entertained there, have restaurants there, and you can office there. If you study similar projects—Toronto with Google and Seattle with Amazon—this is something that Dallas can do where this is sort of the heartbeat, and then all of the other peripheral and contiguous projects can feed off of it. It’s a good, new technology heartbeat. I think that within a 36-48-month period of time, it would be very easy to accomplish.” Steve Van Amburgh, CEO of KDC, on the Dallas Smart District it is developing with Hoque Global.
