Does anyone know a city/town designed, built from scratch and developed in the last 10-15 years?!
There’s Masdar City, although it’s not entirely built yet. I think there’s also quite a few in China.
Thank you. I’ll check it out.
Putra Jaya in Malaysia
Baldwin Park. Orlando, FL. New Urbanist community but view as separate town/city.

Irvine, CA? Well, it’s 40 years old but is an interesting study none the less…
Shenzhen – China
Dubai – UAE
As a side note, I’ve yet to see a “new city” that didn’t feel “plastic” and inhumane like some kind of stepford wive’s social experiment gone wrong…
China’s ghost cities
Leidsche Rijn in the Netherlands is an entirely new addition to the city of Utrecht that’s still under construction – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leidsche_Rijn
