How Smart Districts Can Drive Urban Innovation

Taking the concept of smart buildings to the next level, smart districts emphasize the importance of developing an infrastructure based on integrated technology platforms that are powered by next-generation connectivity; where data, automation, energy, sustainability, operational efficiency and occupant/tenant/guest experience converge and play a vital role in the development of highly connected, fully integrated built environments.

Today Realcomm Live will showcase two of the most innovative smart districts in the world and the technology strategies necessary to develop digital urban neighborhoods of the future. Our guests will be Mike Smith, CEO of WhiteSpace, a building technology advisory firm, who will discuss the Water Street Tampa project, Florida’s first smart district; and Chuck Niswonger, President of NiceNets Consulting, who is working closely on VinGroup’s Vinhomes Ocean Park project, an emerging world-class smart city in Vietnam.
