On this episode of The Future of Work, we explore what the future of community looks like with our guest, Lava Sunder from Culdesac. Lava shares with us the details of the new car-less, people centered community being built right here in Tempe. Culdesac is creating a community where people build connection to their physical space and neighbors in a whole new way. The community will include an onsite grocery store and coworking space allowing people to have fast and efficient access to a place to work and fill their fridges.

Culdesac Tempe is a 1,000 person car-free community – residents will get around via bike, scooter, light rail, and ride share, and have access to a bundle of retail amenities, including a grocery store, coffee shop and coworking space. Culdesac’s goal is to build the first car-free city in America.
