Expressions Of Interest from prospective settlers are encouraged. With aspects of the city currently in development, now is your opportunity to contribute to shaping this remarkable city of the future.
The northern plains of Mars include some of the flattest real estate in the solar system. These plains also have a lot of water locked up in the form of ice at shallow depths in the ground.
Pioneer City has been positioned to take maximum advantage of these essential geographical features.
The city quarter is sheltered inside a scenic 4km-wide pedestal crater on the Utopia Plains, set apart by a raised platform, or pedestal, surrounding the rim crest. It stands 60 to 70 meters above the surrounding plains, providing the city with spectacular 360 degree views of the wide, gently rolling landscape under an enormous sky.
Zoned for up to 20,000 residents, with 7,400 housing units and 1,900 potential commercial sites, Pioneer City is a fully-functioning system comprised of four essential quarters: the City Gates, Agricultural Avenue, City Centre and Industrial Zone.
Stretching 3km from the City Gates to the City Centre, the Agricultural Avenue is a light-filled purpose-built space designed specifically for optimal food production.
Its ground-level garden doubles as a recreational area and hosts a state-of-the-art public transit system, carrying commuters between the City Centre and City Gates.
The avenue extends several levels below ground, with hydroponic farms and in vitro meat farms ensuring that there is plenty of high-quality food to comfortably sustain Pioneer City's residents.
The City Centre is the heart of Pioneer City, containing the majority of the city's living quarters, leisure and recreation centres, educational facilities and community services.
A key feature of the City Centre is its impressive transparent radiation shield that provides intensive protection from the unique conditions experienced on Mars.
Located inside the Pioneer City crater, and extending 1.2km above the crater floor, the upper levels of the City Centre boast extraordinary views across the Agricultural Avenue, City Gates, landing/departure sites and surrounding Utopia Plains.
The City Gates is the grand entrance to Pioneer City, and home to the integral services that manage the various city operations.
Housing the City Council, immigration centre, numerous research centres including the Planetary Terraforming Research Institute (PETRI) and the Martian Exploration Centre (MEC), the City Gates is the brain that ensures Pioneer City's constant efficiency and innovation.
Located beneath the City Centre, the subterranean Industrial Zone hosts Pioneer City's main utilities infrastructure.
From power generation and processing, to energy storage and atmospheric monitoring, the city's power grid is custom designed to harness and process energy from the 100% renewable energy sources of both sun and wind.
Services are transferred to the city quarters through a system that emphasises efficiency, upholding Pioneer City's guiding principles of zero waste and full self-sufficiency.
While Pioneer City may be distant, it is certainly not isolated. People from all walks of life will be presented with a multitude of options for connecting with fellow settlers and making life long friendships.
Locally formed interest and hobby groups will have access to a range of contemporary community centres, playgrounds will be available for young families, and those keen on the outdoors will have access to Martian exploration equipment.
Additionally, Pioneer City will be well-connected to Earth with broadband internet access at optimum connection speeds available in every unit.
In Pioneer City loneliness is not an option.
To support the next generation of pioneers and equip them to reach their full potential, Pioneer City features a state-of-the-art education system from pre-school to tertiary-level.
