As digitally savvy residents become economically proactive, they expect a more seamless engagement with everything around them, including their home, office and recreational facilities. Hence, local governments and real estate developers are pressured to modernize interaction with the built environment through the development of innovative areas or districts and an evolution of building standards to drive the adoption of technology. Technology has become a catalyst to creating a quality of life that will attract skilled residents, companies and organizations by providing a differentiator for the brand of cities and private developers.
A Smart District is a subset of a city and is a key building block to creating a successful Smart City. Smart Districts, just like Smart Cities, are about creating a digitally collaborative ecosystem not just for technology’s sake, but also about improving the social, economic and environmental sustainability of the district; and in doing so ultimately improving quality of life for people.
It must be recognized that the Smart District is a key component for achieving a successful Smart City at a macro level. In many ways, the Smart District Master Planning process requires similar steps.
