From wasteland to green metropolis, the vibrant 30-square-kilometre Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City (Eco-City) is a high-profile bilateral cooperation project between the governments of Singapore and China. Located in Tianjin Binhai New Area, the Eco-City is envisioned to create a harmonious and sustainable community that meets the needs of an urbanising China.
The Keppel Group leads the Singapore consortium for the Eco-City project. As a provider of solutions for sustainable urbanisation, Keppel’s diverse capabilities in urban development, environment and connectivity are also brought together in the Eco-City to create a highly liveable, smart and sustainable community. Keppel's real estate division has been actively involved in the Eco-City since the conception of the project more than a decade ago, and has actively contributed to the Eco-City's transformation from a barren site to the sustainable city it is today.
In the Start-Up Area (SUA) of the Eco-City, we are developing a four-phase residential development, namely Seasons Park, Seasons Garden, Seasons Residences and Seasons Heights, which offers a total of about 4,200 green homes. Seasons Heights is the Eco-City’s first smart estate and features 30 smart technology application scenarios in the estate and in residents’ homes.
Other projects developed by Keppel's real estate division in the Eco-City include low-density homes Waterfront Residences, Serenity Cove and Serenity Villas. Keppel is currently developing Waterfront Residences II in the SUA, an eco-community comprising terrace houses and low-rise apartments.
Seasons City, our commercial development in the Eco-City, is currently under construction. Phase 1, comprising a five-storey retail complex and a 10-storey office tower, is targeted for completion in 2021.
Eco-City International Country Club (ECICC), our 18-hole golf course in the Eco-City, is the world's first Audubon Classic Sanctuary golf course. A world-renowned authoritative stamp on sustainable natural resource management, the Audubon accreditation is testament to ECICC's commitment to best green practices.
Keppel's real estate division and Keppel Urban Solutions are also jointly developing a 166-ha smart precinct in the northern district of the Eco-City.
