LStar Ventures, a developer of master-planned communities, is building a new city at Union Point, the site of the former naval air station in South Weymouth. The 1500-acre site, which happens to be one of the largest remaining developable parcels in the Boston area, is being built to adapt future technological advances in urban living. Optimus Ride has begun testing autonomous vehicles at Union Point, and GE will use Union Point as a lab for testing new products and as a showroom for working systems.

As the LStar Ventures Vice President of Advanced Technologies, Ryan Blackmon leads the Smart Cities and Sustainability Initiatives at Union Point, working closely with urban technology partners like GE, Arup, and Optimus Ride to follow best practices in sustainable design, mobility and resilient energy systems. As the Assistant General Counsel, he provides legal assistance to the General Counsel and senior leadership team.

This event is open to members and guests.
