Tech company Cityzenith has announced that the planned $500 million Orlando Sports & Entertainment Smart District (OS+ED), which will be built in downtown Orlando, Florida, will use its SmartWorldPro2 Digital Twin platform as part of the project’s development.

Digital twin technology allows developers to build a project virtually first in order to optimize design, construction and long-term performance before physical work begins.

Cityzenith has partnered with SISCO, the OS+ED’s primary tech provider, to deliver the four-block, interconnected Smart District, which will include an open-air plaza, 300-room hotel, 420,000 square feet of office space, 80,000 square feet of event space and more than 100,000 square feet of retail.

The SmartWorldPro2’s 3D platform will help provide visitors with a video game-like experience while within the district, allowing them to use a 3D model to access information on retail specials, parking, events and more.
