Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, has purchased an enormous amount of desolate land in Arizona to construct a ‘smart city.’
The 25,000 acres of land is roughly 45 minutes away from Phoenix, Arizona and will now be known as Belmont, named after Gates’ partners in the purchase, Belmont Partners, a real estate investment group based in Arizona. Bill invested in the land through Mt. Lemmon Holdings which is controlled by Cascade Investment LLC and has the same tax address as The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as announced by the Arizona Republic.
The currently desolate 25,000 acres will eventually hold 80,000 homes, 3,800 acres of industrial, office and retail space, 3,400 acres of open space and 470 acres for public schools, according to Arizona-based Belmont Partners.
However, after construction Belmont will not just be your typical gated community, instead their goal is to develop a smart city;
“Belmont will create 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 logistics hubs,” Belmont Partners said in a news release. – AZ Reference (see Works Cited)
A similar project is currently underway by Google, called Quayside, due north in Toronto, Canada. Alphabet’s objective for Quayside is to develop a complete urban community from the ground up.
Historically, when one Tech Giant announces the development of a new product another is chasing tail; attempting to create a competing product. However, cities are not products, people are not bits of data, yet Tech Giants such as Google and Microsoft believe they can solve the problems of the town through invasive technology and surveillance. But, government, is not an engineering problem, so where could this possibly lead?
Both Quayside and Belmont, with their respective populations, are ground zero for testing new technology, as admitted by the corporations involved in development. Quayside plans to expand outwards. While Gates has yet to release the official plan for construction, it’s a safe bet that this is the start of the infamous Smart Cities of the future.
While acknowledging the problems of the modern city, Belmont Partners claim that; “Belmont is an incredible opportunity for the state of Arizona,” Grady Gammage, Jr., Founding Partner of Gammage & Burnham, said in the announcement. “Envisioning future infrastructure from scratch is far easier and more cost-efficient than retrofitting an existing urban fabric. Belmont presents such an opportunity. We know of virtually no other property in the United States so strategically positioned, already entitled, and yet presenting a nearly blank slate of opportunity.”
Take a second and think about the last time your computer crashed, and now imagine that was the infrastructure of a block in a smart city. Or take for example how Equifax, one of the largest credit Bureaus, that was just recently hacked, now imagine if that was an autonomous vehicle.
Development for both Quayside and Belmont are years away. However, Microsoft is not done yet. Rather, Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen through his corporation Vulcan Inc. donated $10 million for the development of yet another city, Columbus, Ohio. In addition, the U.S. Department of Transportation contributed $40 million to the project.
Under the Obama Administration, the US Department of Transportation, created a challenge for mid-sized cities across America to develop ideas for an integrated, first-of-its-kind smart transportation system that would use data, applications, and technology to help people and goods move more quickly, cheaply, and efficiently.
In direct accordance with Agenda 2030, specifically Goal #9, the plan is to recreate our cities into metropolises, organized and operated by technology. Two years after the acceptance of Agenda 2030, development in several US cities is well underway, with one goal in mind, number nine.
Goal Number Nine Reads As Follows;
- Efficient transportation services generate employment and wealth and drive economic development. In 2015, the estimated global economic impact (both direct and indirect) of air transport was $2.7 trillion, equivalent to 3.5 per cent of global GDP. The least developed countries, landlocked developing countries and small island developing States represent far less air travel and freight volumes, with each country group accounting for only 1 per cent to 2.7 per cent of the global total.
- Manufacturing is a principal driver of economic development, employment and social stability. Globally, manufacturing value added as a share of GDP increased from 15.3 per cent in 2005 to 16.2 per cent in 2016. In 2016, manufacturing value added per capita amounted to $4,621 in Europe and Northern America, compared to about $100 in the least developed countries.
- As many countries move to more efficient and less energy-intensive industries, their emissions of carbon dioxide per unit of manufacturing value added are generally declining. From 2000 to 2014, Europe and Northern America reduced their emissions intensity by 36 per cent. All of the 10 largest manufacturing countries saw decreases in their emissions intensity. Such promising trends are not reflected in the global emissions intensity level, however, since a significant share of global manufacturing value added has moved to countries with generally higher intensity levels.
- In 2014, investments in research and development stood at 1.7 per cent of global GDP, up from 1.5 per cent in 2000. Worldwide, there were 1,098 researchers per million inhabitants in 2014, ranging from 63 in the least developed countries to 3,500 in Europe and Northern America.
-ODA for economic infrastructure in developing countries reached $57 billion in 2015, an increase of 32 per cent in real terms since 2010. The main recipient sectors were transport and energy ($19 billion each).
- Manufacturing is increasingly shifting towards more technologically complex products. While medium- and high-tech products continue to dominate manufacturing production in industrialized economies (where they contribute about 80 per cent of total manufacturing output), the share has barely reached 10 per cent in least developed countries.
- Mobile-cellular services have spread rapidly and have allowed people living in previously unconnected areas to join the global information society. In 2016, 95 per cent of the world’s population and 85 per cent of people in the least developed countries were covered by a mobile-cellular signal.
But what does the integration of modern technologies and cities look like? According to Nvidia;

With Google constructing the first ever ‘Urban Human Lab,’ Bill Gates following suit, and the United Nations leading the charge it’s not an understatement to say that these organizations wish to treat humanity as an engineering problem.
In fact, both Google and Microsoft have already displayed their interest in engineering humanity and the world with the distribution of vaccines and mosquitoes. Google, or Alphabet, released 20 million bacteria-infected mosquitoes into two California neighborhoods with the goal of quelling mosquito populations. The Microsoft foundation has for decades contributed millions to the distribution of birth control and vaccines across the globe.
Disregarding what the Mainstream media drums up as beneficial to humanity, a glance under the surface at what the two corporations have done, and suddenly doors that open by the ‘swipe of a hand’ aren’t exactly so convenient.
According to Independent Journalists and the Government of India, Bill and Melinda Gates’ Foundation engaged in covertly distributing dangerous vaccines;
India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) announced recently that it is officially cutting ties with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This announcement comes after it was shown that so-called vaccine “campaigns” conducted on tens of thousands of young girls throughout India back in 2009-2010 that were meant to help protect them from cervical cancer were actually cloaked vaccine trials involving two highly controversial vaccines known to injure and kill.
The vaccines in question are Cervarix by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Gardasil by Merck & Co., both of which are marketed as protecting against the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is claimed to have a link to cervical cancer. Both vaccines come with extreme side effects, and evidence shows that GSK and Merck essentially teamed up with the Gates Foundation to take advantage of young Indian girls and use them as human guinea pigs in trials of the two vaccines.
According to independent journalists, these trials resulted in thousands of injuries and hundreds of deaths that were eventually traced back to the two vaccines. Once news of this got back to Indian authorities, an investigation was launched that landed the Gates Foundation in court for serious ethical violations. Economic and Political Weekly, which led the investigation, says that the Gates Foundation ban is unquestionably necessary due to “…the promotional practices of drug companies, pressure from powerful international organizations, and the co-option of, and uncritical endorsement by India’s medical associations are influencing the country’s public health priorities.”

Remember the Microcephaly crisis of every country around the Equator? Genetically Modified Mosquitoes, according to independent journalists, actually caused the problems rather than fixing them;
One of the first questions that comes to mind is, what happens if one of the GM mosquitoes bites you? Will their GM DNA be injected into your arm or leg? Oxitec has counteracted this objection by stating they only plan to release male mosquitoes, which don’t bite.
This again sounds good in theory… but in reality, sorting millions of insects according to sex is no small feat. And even FKMCD notes that although “every effort is made to release only males,” Oxitec trials show that .03 percent of the mosquitoes released are female.7
So it’s not only males being released. If 3 million mosquitoes are released, as they were in the Caymans, data from Oxitec trials suggest about 900 of them will be female – and capable of biting. Even so, FKMCD states “there’s no difference between the bite of an Oxitec female and a wild one.”
It’s unclear on what research they are basing this assumption. The AP reported that Oxitec has released 70 million GM mosquitoes thus far, with no reports of “human impacts caused by bites or from the synthetic DNA.”8 What the heck does that mean? Who would even know to report or where?
Also, the mosquitoes haven’t been around long enough to assume there will be no impacts. There are several glaring problems with assuming these GM bugs are safe for the human population.

Interestingly enough, in addition to Google’s plan to release engineered mosquitoes, Bill Gates had his hands directly into the company behind the genetically modified mosquitoes released in South America, Oxitech.
With that in mind, it is prevalent that the two aforementioned corporations are attempting to use engineering to quell ‘the problems’ of our time. However, thanks to history, when humans are treated like an engineering problem, millions die as a result. The Smart City of the future, according to the Global Goals, will utilize Big Data, to analyze humanity and exploit human psychology for the respective corporations benefit.
