Intelligent City is a housing technology company with the mission to empower people to live better, to build smarter, and to address climate change and urban housing challenges. 

Taking a product and platform-based approach, we vertically integrate high-rise mass timber building systems, advanced design-engineering, automated manufacturing, and parametric software.
