The Bridge is a 'for-purpose' real estate development company that  acquires old properties like schools, malls, and warehouses, then turns them into "eco villages" in the inner city. Our properties are intended to be totally sustainable and self-contained mixed-use “Eco-Villages” with housing, commercial/retail space, co-working, urban agriculture, innovation/education center and entertainment. As such, The Bridge is a “world-class” model for other communities.

Coworking at The Bridge is the central hub for all entrepreneurs, business owners and students alike. These spaces are designed to be welcoming and encourage patrons to interact in the most productive ways.


Gaia Gardens at The Bridge is an Indoor Urban Closed Loop farming facility designed as a large-scale vertically integrated hydroponics and aeroponics system for local fresh food production of vegetables, leafy greens and herbs.



Living at The Bridge provides the opportunity to rent and own a state of the art apartment with cutting edge technology and added benefits that traditional housing does not offer.

Empower at The Bridge was formed to better lives through LEARNING by promoting urban sustainability with hands-on-learning, resource sharing, and community engagement.

- STEEM Center (extra E for entrepreneurship)

- Financial Literacy Workshops

- Job Training and more…


The Bridge Entertainment provides the opportunity to engage in different forms of entertainment, from a traditional concert, batting cages and arcade to Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality fully immersive areas!
