  1. New Construction is what we need, truly. I completely agree. When I was a child I saw the “Jetsons” and to me that was new construction development in itself. Sounds strange but it is from creativity that Centuries of influence in architecture starts there. New Construction of more Community based, everything you need within your housing community structure, could be the future of it all. With the ability to have sound proof construction that is green friendly, more private structures coupled with advanced virtual health, and home shopping of grocery development through Amazon and others…is the coming wave. New Construction of home pods, condos and multi-room for family construction might slim down the healthcare problem, as well. Imagine a home pod structure that is all wifi virtual living… Food, health, banking and utility/bill payment… Kiosk in the community asks for you home pod unit, your ID info via facial recognition (confidential) and it recognizes all your needs, your food structure (likes and extras) delivered to your pod, privately security to your pod home, instantly – even crime would cease. As well as, self driving cars that take you to work and brings you home safely. You even get into your home pod with virtual face recognition – no more lost keys. The future is like the Jetsons, only with auto everything you need. New Construction in a new way… Imagine that. “Be in front or Be behind… but at least B creative…. I say”. Thank you just a thought 🙂
