Tianjin Eco-City In China.
Green urban development is becoming more common these days. The newest trend is entire eco-cities. Sustainable cities not only generate their own energy but also they produce their own food and water in a way that that doesn’t harm the environment.
Designed by Surbana Urban Planning Group, Tianjin Eco-City in China is one of these future sustainable communities, spanning 30 square kilometers and showcasing cutting-edge energy efficiency technologies.
Situated 45 kilometres from Tianjin City and 150 kilometers from Beijing, the city will have an advanced light rail transit system and varied eco-landscapes ranging from a sun-powered solarscape to a greenery-clad earthscape for its estimated 350,000 residents to enjoy.
Tianjin Eco-City is expected to be up and running by 2020.
