The area the Gates purchased has had several different plans for development since the 90’s but no projects ever materialized for one reason or another. When development gets under way you can expect to see 3,800 acres of office, retail and commercial space. 3,800 acres of industrial space, 3,400 acres of open space that will most likely be later developed into some sort of park as well as 470 acres for various schools.
