7 of the World’s Most Unusual Towns

  • 7 of 8

 

6. CITE, New Mexico

Like any other town in the United States, the soon-to-be-built CITE will be full of highways, roads, homes, and commercial buildings. There will be an urban center, as well as suburban and rural areas. Homes have appliances and plumbing, the city has electricity. But nobody will live in CITE, or The Center for Innovation, Testing & Evaluation. A company called Pegasus Holdings is planning to build a mid-sized city not for living, but for testing green energy, transportation, wireless infrastructure, and first responder technology projects, among others. Modeled after Rock Hill, South Carolina, a city of over 65,000 people, this $1 billion project will allow for testing without interfering with everyday life in the real world.

Must add some of these to 'my bucket list' might give the oil platform a miss though!
