The 30 square kilometer Eco-City in Tianjin, China is set to be completed in 2020. The Eco-project was designed by Surbana Urban Planning Group which will showcase the hottest new energy-saving technologies like wind and solar power, rainwater recycling and waste-water treatment/desalination of sea water.

International news sites reported that the Eco-City is expected to house 350,000 residents in Tianjin. The city was said to be divided in seven sectors which differ in terms of landscaping and programmatic offerings. A Lifescape, an Eco-Valley, a Solarscape, an Urbanscape, a Windscape, an Earthscape and Eco-Corridors.

Tianjin Eco-City is just a 10-minute drive from the business parks at the Tianjin Economic-Development Area. It was situated 150km from the Chinese capital of Beijing and 45km from Tianjin City.
