Led by Intelligence Analyst Alexander Paci
Major US technology companies are focusing their attention on constructing corporate housing, self-sufficient towns, and even entire urban neighborhoods.
Adding to the mix, insurgent startups are redefining construction and design, changing the course of how homes are built and managed.
In this briefing, we analyze developments in housing technology among major technology companies and startups alike.
We discuss how housing technology is developing through project-based partnerships and venture investment, including:
- Google’s experimentation with prefab housing, and Toronto waterfront development via its subsidiary Sidewalk Labs
- Amazon’s strategic partnership with home builder Lennar
- Startups like Katerra that are altering the paradigm of residential construction
