SELF-SUFFICIENT RECHARGEABLE ELECTRIC NEIGHBORHOODS. DELIVERED.

Beginning in 2023 Now City will deliver entire neighborhoods that can be configured and ordered online like a Tesla. Designed from the ground up for the well being of people and planet. Greener. Safer. Smarter. Happier. Funner (why is that not a word?). And yes, more affordable.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to accelerate the global transition to regenerative human habitats so we can leave this world better than we found it. 

Our goal is to create the best neighborhood possible by leveraging technology and rethinking real estate development, construction, finance, and property management. And then make a bunch more as fast as possible.

“A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move toward higher levels.” – Albert Einstein

OUR VALUES

“Beliefs divide us. Values unite us.” ― Jeff Rasley

These values guide us at our company and also provide a framework for how we can live together happily as neighbors in Now City. Or anywhere.

Cultivate Diversity

Because it’s the right thing to do but also because it has huge returns on investment for all of us! Science and research show us that diverse communities of people (and other lifeforms) are healthier, more resilient, more vibrant, and tend to live in a state of dynamic equilibrium.

Empower Imagination

Because it’s literally how we learn and grow and solve problems. We need our imaginations working at full steam to imagine how to get from where we are to where we want to be. We believe we can really move the needle if we lean into this value as we design the spaces, places, systems & solutions that we live with everyday.

Build Trust

Because trust is essential to living and working together. Transparency, even though it can make us feel vulnerable or uncomfortable, makes trust easier, faster, deeper, and longer lasting.

Begin Regeneration

Because regenerative is better than sustainable. Because sustaining wasteful processes and behaviors isn’t going to work. Because we need to make things and do things that make our communities and the natural world we depend on better, not worse. 

AT HOME

Now City homes are a unique blend of flexible living spaces that can change with your situation. Imagine adding or removing walls, or even a bathroom or kitchen, by pushing a button in a mobile app. Your friends and family can book additional short-term spaces in the neighborhood when they come to visit.

Private Edible Greenspace As A Service

We take local produce to the next level and you get better food and more oxygen. Technology and local experts take the hard work out of growing green and yummy things in your private and shared spaces.

The Best Food. Delivered. Wherever & Whenever.

Locally and sustainably produced meals. Made how you like it. Delivered to any place you want to eat it. Return your dirty dishes for credit.

Robotic Furniture & Spaces

Furniture and walls move and reconfigure at your request so you can do more with less space, which also reduces costs and environmental impact.

Smart Appliances & Utilities Included

If anything breaks it calls for help and gets fixed. Our partners use circular design principals which does away with “planned obsolescence” and other wasteful practices. Energy is from local renewable sources.

Highspeed Connectivity & Local Cloud

To stay productive and resilient we want super high speeds, reliable connections, and a version of the internet that keeps working when the impossible happens. With no hassles. Included.

Smart Home Systems

We and our partners are developing higher standards and solutions for air and water quality, efficient climate control, fire safety, and home security.

Automated Laundry Service

Same day laundry service picked up and delivered by a friendly robot.

AI-Optimized Spaces

We use machine learning to understand how the design of spaces affects our happiness and well-being. We have the best designers in the world using the latest software tools creating millions of possible designs to arrive at highly functional, efficient, and beautiful solutions.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Delightful amenities & spaces that are free for residents and available to the public for a fee. Flexible spaces for coworking, learning, & making. Exercise facilities. Flexible spaces for retail, dining & entertainment. 

A Rechargeable Electric Neighborhood

Going electric means quieter, cleaner, healthier, and safer neighborhoods. Rechargeable batteries allow the campus to stay fully operational in emergencies.

Health & Fitness Reimagined

Advanced exercise equipment, diagnostics, monitoring and holistic whole body programs customized for your individual needs and goals.

Flexible Zoning & Retail Spaces

A vital, vibrant, healthy neighborhood needs a profound diversity of things to do and see and taste, and opportunities for people to add value to the community. Some businesses need to grow, and some need to stay small. Algorithmic zoning & flexible spaces design will help.

Walkability, Bikeability & On-demand Transportation

No gas-guzzling behemoths pushing people aside and spewing pollution. The stuff we need and want close by. Appropriate options for short and long trips. Micromobility. A Hyperloop station ASAP!

Open Markets With Local Produce, Goods & Services

Markets are where communities come together to do business and just hang out together. They are at their best when they are open, beautiful, friendly, fun, and delicious.

Advanced Healthcare & Longevity Science

Preventative and wellness focused approaches and solutions. The best healthcare practitioners via telepresence and telerobotic surgery. 

Co-working, Co-making, Learning & Studio Spaces

A culture of curiosity, creativity & collaboration supported by advanced technology, space design, and logistics support to make you productive and fulfilled.

Neighborhood Nature

Beautiful and edible greenscapes make food and air. Little hand-crafted local trails that you can get lost in. Easy access to parks & wild areas.

Learning Labs & Childcare Spaces

Modern frameworks, tools, resources, and facilitators for early childhood development and project-based learning for all ages.
