Designed to host a wealth of residents, Smart City Natal is constantly growing in São Gonçalo do Amarante in Rio Grande do Norte, Northeast Brazil, just eight kilometres from Governador Aluízio Alves International Airport and 20 kilometres from the capital, Natal.
Besides its strategic location near services and job locations in one of the fastest-growing regions of Brazil, our smart city residents are also close to some of the most beautiful beaches in the state, such as Genipabu, Pipa, and São Miguel do Gostoso.
Over time, we expect there to be 700 houses built within the city limits, as well as other residential land plots and commercial units ranging from 200 to 755 square metres in size.
Another keystone to our community in Natail is the integration of over 50 smart solutions to encourage a cooperative economy and a new way of community living. Smart solutions include smart lighting and home automation systems, a bike-sharing scheme, and shared social spaces such as a library and cinema. All these services and solutions are also supported by the Planet App, our proprietary application, available to all of our residents worldwide.
Natal’s Community Managers are certified behavioural analysts and psychologists, specialising in people management and business consultancy. They develop social activities and provide free training as part of the ‘Ela Pode’ programme – an initiative supported by Google, which offers communication, leadership, negotiation, finance, networking, personal branding, and digital tools to women in situations of socio-economic vulnerability.
