While billionaires like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are busy battling in space, another has a bigger plan: To make Earth a better place to live.
Marc Lore, who made his fortune as a top executive at Walmart, wants to build a new city in America that would be home to 5 million inhabitants. And he’s appointed a world-famous architect to design the city, CNN reported.
The outlet reported that Lore last week “unveiled plans for Telosa, a sustainable metropolis that he hopes to create, from scratch, in the American desert.
The ambitious 150,000-acre proposal promises eco-friendly architecture, sustainable energy production and a purportedly drought-resistant water system. A so-called ’15-minute city design’ will allow residents to access their workplaces, schools and amenities within a quarter-hour commute of their homes.”
