At a dynamic community and media event, Brookfield Residential and City of Ontario recently unveiled the grand opening of Rodeo X food hall and Brew Haven tap house plus sweeping, lifestyle-enhancing technology innovations and services for the residents of Ontario and the New Haven masterplan community. The breakthroughs include the first authorized test drone service for a major U.S. city, robot carts for residents, plus e-scooters, smart hubs and more. These tech advancements – the result of long-term investment by the City and Brookfield Residential – further define Ontario as one of the most advanced cities in the U.S. for providing technology that vastly improves everyday life for residents.
The event attracted significant media attention, including most Los Angeles television news departments.
“New Haven residents will soon enjoy exciting tech tools in a masterplan setting that will enhance everyday quality of life,” said Brookfield Properties SoCal Land & Housing President Nicole Burdette. “These drones, robot carts, e-scooters, smart nodes and other astonishing advances will uplift and simplify life at New Haven.”
Ontario Mayor Paul S. Leon concurred, saying, “The New Haven masterplan debuted in 2015 as a ‘gigabit community,’ with lightning-fast downloads far surpassing other cities in the country. Since then, our partnership with Brookfield Residential has continued to deliver the best, most cutting-edge and practical technology. It’s all about Community, Connectivity and Convenience. And these new tools – enhancing and simplifying life at New Haven – boost sustainability and businesses while propelling Ontario among the nation’s top, smart-technology cities.”
