URA launches exhibition on Tianjin Eco-city project

by Romesh Navaratnarajah The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has launched an exhibition showcasing the progress of the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city (pictured), a collaborative effort between the Singapore and Chinese governments.

Called Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city: Model for Sustainable Urban Development, the exhibition showcases joint efforts between both countries in building a sustainable city and was organised in collaboration with the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City Investment and Development Co. Ltd (SSTEC), with support from the Eco-City Administrative Committee (ECAC).

Taking place at URA Centre, the event will run till 31 December.

The exhibition also features new ideas for the Tianjin Eco-city Main Centre and its waterfront cultural belt, submitted by international design firms.

At the launch, highlights and future plans for Tianjin Eco-city were shared through a seminar attended by policy makers, urban planners and industry professionals. The speakers were SSTEC CEO, Ho Tong Yen and Li Dong, ECAC's Director of Construction Bureau.

"We are currently focusing on the development of the 3 sq km Start-up Area in the Eco-City. Looking ahead, beyond the Start-up Area, our focus would increasingly shift towards the Eco-City Centre. This exhibition provides a glimpse into what the Eco-City Centre could look like in future," said Ho.

In addition, representatives from the URA, Building and Construction Authority (BCA), Jurong Consultants and Surbana International Consultants shared their experiences on urban planning and design.

Ng Lang, URA's CEO said: "The exhibition and seminar are excellent platforms for local planners to get invaluable insights into the planning and development of the Tianjin Eco-city, and perhaps draw some inspirations from the work being done there."
