Medellin named Innovative City of the Year


Our 79th BlueCity, Medellin, Colombia, recently made headlines by being named “Innovative City of the Year.” The competition was held on a global scale, and called attention to the most creative, forward-thinking cities when it comes to infrastructure and urban planning.

“City of the Year” was organized by the nonprofit Urban Landscape Institue, in partnership with Citi and the Wall Street Journal. Together, they evaluated 200 cities and asked WSJ readers to first narrow it down to 25 contenders, and then the top three. In fact, back when we announced service to Medellin, it had recently been named as a finalist. Well, here we are – voted as the big winner!

We’re excited for our big Medellin launch in June, when our customers can check out this innovative BlueCity!
