In a groundbreaking revelation, a group of the world’s wealthiest individuals has unveiled plans to create a new billionaire city in California. After years of discreetly acquiring land, this audacious initiative seeks to address some of the most pressing challenges facing the state. Led by Flannery Associates, a company helmed by former Goldman Sachs trader Jan Sramek, and supported by a stellar cast of tech entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, California’s future utopia promises to be a remarkable addition to the Golden State’s landscape.

The new city, located just a few hours outside the bustling Bay Area, is designed to be a paradigm of progressive urban planning. Embracing clean energy, accessible public transit, and high-density living, this visionary project aims to tackle critical issues such as housing shortages, job creation, and infrastructure development. The $800 million worth of land acquired by Flannery Associated will serve as the canvas for this grand endeavor.

According to The New York Times, the venture's financial backers read like a who's who of the tech world:

  • Marc Andreessen, a16z
  • John Collison, Stripe co-founder
  • Patrick Collison, Stripe co-founder
  • Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn co-founder
  • Michael Moritz, Sequoia Capital Chairman
  • Laurene Powell Jobs, Emerson Collective founder (and Steve Jobs' widow)

These influential figures are united in their commitment to making this vision a reality, leveraging their collective resources and expertise to reshape the future of California.

California Forever, the parent company of Flannery Associates, has spent years meticulously acquiring over 50,000 acres of land in Solano County, strategically centered around Travis Air Force Base. With a commitment to sustainable and innovation development, the project aims to create a model city for future generations. 

The revelation of this new city development project in California, backed by some of the world's most influential billionaires, marks a significant milestone in the state's history. With its focus on sustainability, accessibility, and innovative urban planning, this venture promises to redefine the way we think about cities.
