Call us a little skeptical on this one. This one sounds great on paper and reminds us a little of the hey days of crazy in Sin City, right before the housing implosion. A project called “Bleutech Park Las Vegas” will supposedly break ground in the Las Vegas valley around December of this year. It projects itself as the “first city in the world to boast a digital revolution in motion, redefining the infrastructure industry sector.” Yep, already have an issue with how they are selling this redefining infrastructure dream. And, to top things off, no one knows where this is being built in Las Vegas.

We read the project is going to yield net-zero buildings within their own insular mini-city and will feature automated multi-functional designs, renewable energies from solar/wind/water/kinetic, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, super trees, and self-healing concrete structures. Um, what are “super trees”?

The $7.5 billion project, yes you read that correctly, $7.5 billon or almost 4 times the cost of the new Sin City Raiders football stadium.  The project will offer workforce housing, offices, retail space, ultra-luxury residential, hotel and entertainment while showcasing energy generation and storage, waste-heat recovery, water purification, on-site waste treatment and localized air cleaning, introducing a new high-tech biome to the desert valley.

Job creation is expected to exceed 25,000 and provide on-the-job training programs with the latest technology to train the construction workforce of the future.

Bleutech also aims at tackling issues such as affordable housing through the development of “Workforce Housing.” This unique approach intends to serve the housing needs of people employed in jobs that the general population relies upon to make the community economically viable, such as nurses, police officers, teachers, firemen, and multiple others within a description of service to their communities.

Hopefully, this is NOT a mirage because we like the “aim” at tackling affordable housing.  However, the words “ultra-luxury residential” and workforce housing don’t normally mix. So, for now, we will wait without holding our proverbial breath.
