CITE: The $1 Billion City that Will Never Home Humans

In the desert areas of southern New Mexico just near the U.S.-Mexico border, a new city is on the rise — in the same location where the first atomic bomb was tested.

According to CNN, the new city is being founded for a population of about 35,000. With carefully built rows of terraced housing and a seemingly modern business district purpose downtown, the city should be a reasonable choice for migration.

Aside from the neat rows of houses, the city will also be provided with streets structured for the safety of its residents, several parks for the elderly and children who would like to make friends, and malls selling branded products for the shopping-loving teens and moms.

While a church for the religious faith will also stand inside the $1 billion-funded project, no human will ever call the amazing site home.

The project is spearheaded by telecommunications and technology firm Pegasus Global Holdings. 15-square-miles will be dedicated to the experiments in various fields including transportation, construction, communication, and security — all for the purpose of creating a model for a simple American town.

The CITE (Center for Innovation, Testing and Evaluation) will be the ground for developing new technologies that should help improve the goals and aspirations of the urban community.

The project is seen to focus on some specialized fields for the purpose of developing new forms of agricultural strategies, energy conservation methods, and water treatments. A data collection network will be developed underground for the provision of detailed and real-time feedback.

Vehicles with no drivers will be placed on roads monitored by traffic drones floating above the city. The houses will be built for the purpose of natural disaster survival and will be installed with robotic features.

Pegasus Managing Director Robert Brumley says "The vision is an environment where new products, services and technologies can be demonstrated and tested without disrupting everyday life."
