Chinese tech giant Tencent is creating a “smart city” that utilizes technology to put people and the environment first, a model that could be applied to other urban developments after the coronavirus, the project’s architect said on Wednesday.
Net City will be a 2 million square meter (21.5 million square feet) neighborhood in the southeastern city of Shenzhen, comprising Tencent offices and residences for its employees, as well as public amenities such as parks and a waterfront area.
