Talks are underway between Chinese and Singaporean officials on the planned green city to be constructed in Tianjin. Groundbreaking is planned for July. According to Channel NewsAsia:
When completed, there will be some 300,000 residents living and working in energy-efficient buildings in Tianjin’s Binhai New Area.
90 percent of them will make “green trips” by walking, cycling or using public transportation to ensure the city lives up to its eco-friendly premise.
There will be 100 percent barrier-free access and clusters of inclusive, close-knit communities cutting across demographics. . . .
The partners hope the new venture will become a model of sustainable development for other cities in China.
