Microsoft co-founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates put down $80 million for a massive swath of land in Arizona, about 45 minutes west of downtown Phoenix, KPNXreports.
The city will have a "communication and infrastructure spine that embraces cutting-edge technology", says Belmont Partners, designed around high-speed digital networks, data centres, new manufacturing technologies and distribution models, driverless vehicles, and autonomous logistics hubs.
