We are living in truly incredible times. “A new town planned for outside Melbourne, Australia could provide the first look at the future of suburban living. As Renew Economy reports, the “Tesla Town” will be the first in the world to feature solar roofs, energy efficient appliances, and Tesla Powerwalls built into every household.
Designed and developed by the Australian property group Glenvill, the town has been dubbed YarraBend for the nearby Yarra River. When the project is complete, it will have 2500 townhouses, apartments, and single-family homes.
