In collaboration with SED DevCo LLC (project developer) Cityzenith will promote, optimize, and make future ready the $500 million Orlando Sports & Entertainment District.
This collaborative partnership is deploying a customized and enhanced version of Cityzenith’s award-winning SmartWorldPro2 Digital Twin platform for the first time on a megaproject in the United States.
SmartWorldPro2 integrates all software and services used by anyone designing, constructing, and managing complex, large scale building projects, properties, and real estate portfolios.
The Orlando Sports & Entertainment District is a mixed-use development that will consist of over one millionsquare feet of space adjacent to the Amway Center in downtown Orlando, home to the Orlando Magic NBA basketball team, and one block away from Exploria Stadium, home to Orlando City Soccer of the MLS. The design includes a 300-key hotel, a 420,000 square foot office tower, a 300-unit residential and co-living tower, a 65,000 square feet multipurpose event and entertainment venue, more than 100,000 square feet of experiential retail and restaurants lining an activated, engaging, inclusive open-air plaza. The Orlando Sports & Entertainment District will be a fully interconnected community using state-of-the-art IoT, Digital Twin and AI Technologies to support increased quality of life in the neighborhoods just west of Interstate 4, at the Western edge of the Central Business District.
Cityzenith’s CEO Michael Jansen said “I’m delighted to partner with SED DevCO to launch the visionary Orlando Sports & Entertainment District project”
“It’s our first major project of this scale in America and will highlight how SmartWorldPro2 is able to integrate with IoT, artificial intelligence, smart building, and other technologies to deliver a comprehensive Digital Twin-enabled, future ready community”
The primary objective of our efforts is to attract tenants and visitors in a safe and secure manner to downtown Orlando venues for a ‘wow, it feels like I’m really there’ 3D immersive experience, delivering an unprecedented wealth of information and connected services. The pioneering work could also unlock additional contracts for Cityzenith on other SED DevCo-affiliated projects by the end of 2021.
Phil Tinsley, CEO of SED DevCo, the developer of the Orlando Sports & Entertainment District said “The projectis a highly programmed and amenitized development where residents, visitors and tenants experience Living-as-a-Service (LaaS) the first bundled entertainment, ticketing, hospitality, housing, transportation, food and beverage, wellness,and utilities platform of its kind. We partnered with Cityzenith’s SmartWorld Pro2 Digital Twin to best demonstrate and bring data rich experience to life as a critical component to increasing quality of life while reducing the cost of living in our downtown community”
Tinsley predicted enhanced tenant and resident retention due to the easy-to-use ‘single-pane-of-glass' software platform that allows access to all the information they need when they need it adding “Our platform’s unique features will create an online virtual 3D tour like no other video game-like experience where visitors navigate to and click on elements in a life-like 3D Orlando Sports & Entertainment model to see event times, retail offers, parking availability, and even the view from their hotel rooms”
Michael Jansen added “The Orlando Sports & Entertainment District project is high-profile, forward thinking, and future ready, and the partnership opportunity is a huge win for us, while boosting our Cityzenith ‘Clean Cities – Clean Future’ mission.
“Currently, 10,000 cities produce 70% of global greenhouse emissions and just 100 – megalopolises like New York, Tokyo, London and Paris – produce 25% of that total.
“It must change and SmartWorldPro2’s ability to create digitally-twinned cities to inventory GHG emissions and streamline urban redevelopment initiatives makes it the platform of choice for executing energy transition projects at any scale, whether a district, a campus, a city, or an entire country.
“Please join us on our journey and watch for more updates as SmartWorldPro2 marches towards cleaning and freeing our cities for a better future”
