Keppel's eco homes in Tianjin Eoc-City draw strong buyer interest
Just over the weekend, Keppel has sold more than 90% of the 220 units released for during the soft launch of its Seasons Park residential development in the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City (Tianjin Eco-City). Seasons Park is the first collection of eco-homes to be launched in the Keppel development where Keppel Corporation and Keppel Land have ventured jointly. Besides leading the Singapore Consortium in the Tianjin Eco-City, Keppel will develop its own 36.6-ha site located within the Start-up Area. The entire Keppel eco-development is expected to yield about 5,000 homes in total as well as commercial developments including office and retail. It will galvanise the expertise and talents of international consultants and agencies to contribute towards the development of a thriving city in an ecologically sustainable urban living environment. In line with Keppel's commitment to the vision for the Tianjin Eco-City, its homes and commercial properties will be developed to achieve at least the BCA's Green Mark Gold standard or its equivalent under the Tianjin Eco-City's Green Building Evaluation Standard (GBES). The GBES evaluates a building in six areas, namely: Land Savings & Outdoor Environment, Energy Efficiency, Materials Savings, Water Savings, Indoor Environment Quality, and Operation & Maintenance.
