An innovative autonomous vehicle research and development hub is coming to Chula Vista. Millenia Smart Park from developer Chesnut Properties will feature small and large drone aerial testing, marine drone testing and an autonomous vehicle testing track along with office buildings and research space.

Chula Vista has already committed to becoming a smart city. The area is one of only two autonomous vehicle proving grounds designated by the US Department of Transportation in California, making it an ideal location for the park. “There is already an infrastructure in place in San Diego to support a totally autonomous community,” Lee Chesnut of Chesnut Properties tells GlobeSt.com. “It starts with the city of Chula Vista, which is committed to being the smartest city in the country. The preparation has been made to transition into the future of a technology community, and the City of Chula Vista is leading that and the Millennia development is prepared for that.”
