Sidewalk Labs is an Alphabet company founded in 2015 to combine forward thinking urban design and cutting-edge technology to radically improve urban life.

Informed by more than 18 months of public consultation, Sidewalk Labs’ Master Innovation and Development Plan (MIDP) proposes a comprehensive planning and partnership model that sets a new standard for urban development in the 21st century. It is a work-in-progress meant to be refined by further consultation — not a finished product and it seeks to build on the core elements and not supersede existing precinct plans or waterfront planning frameworks.

Across three volumes, the MIDP outlines a new vision for how cities can integrate physical, digital, and policy innovations to produce real improvements in affordability, sustainability, quality of life and generate significant economic opportunity.
