First public housing devt in Sino-S’pore Tianjin Eco-city reaches milestone

The first public housing development in the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city has reached a significant milestone.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Wednesday.

Singapore’s Senior Minister of State for National Development Grace Fu officiated at the event.

The Eco-city is designed to promote social harmony, create economic vibrancy and environmental sustainability.

One of its key performance indicators is to have at least 20 per cent of its housing units in the form of public housing.

The first phase of the public housing development is located in the four-square-kilometre start-up area (SUA) of the Eco-city. It will have 569 units spread out in seven blocks.

The project is expected to be completed by mid-2011. In all, some 3,000 public housing units will be build in the start-up area.
