Reclaiming Urban Land to Build the Community of the Future

Building a sustainable city starts with restoring the land itself: 700 acres with Bay and mountain views. A former landfill transformed into a solar farm. An abandoned rail yard reclaimed as public parks and much-needed housing. A forgotten eyesore reimagined as a thriving community.

This Time, Cars Are Actually Part of the Solution

Introducing the world's first EV-integrated microgrid. This visionary energy solution utilizes an on-site fleet of electric vehicles charged by 100% green energy. The EVs store that energy and supply it back to the system when demand is high.

It's an energy and mobility solution in one.

    The Baylands Podcast

    The Baylands Podcast is a conversation about the global and local strategies—from development to transportation—that make zero-carbon living achievable. In each Baylands episode we talk with a preeminent expert, keying in on how sustainable living—in the form of intentionally-designed communities—can enhance lifestyle, making life easier and more meaningful while at the same time reducing our carbon footprint.


    Sonny Caberwal: Human Connection

    Sonny Caberwal is a serial entrepreneur who is fascinated by how technology can improve the quality of our lives. Sonny is currently partnering with the developers of The Baylands to help design a mixed-use, sustainable community on the 700-acre site that will foster equity and human connection. In this episode, we take a deep dive into how Sonny is helping design the community in ways that will enhance the lifestyle of the thousands who will live and work there, while also giving the experience more meaning.

    Sonny has spent the last two years with a team of researchers exploring life skill-based learning for children. That research has culminated with Legends, an AI startup aimed at teaching kids confidence. Previously, he co-founded and sold one of the earliest e-commerce fashion brands in India.
