China to Build its First Ever Environmentally Friendly City

Construction is set to begin on a new environmentally friendly city in China which will house around 30,000 families on 1.3 square kilometres of land just outside Chengdu. Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture recently completed the master plan describing the Chengdu Tianfu District Great City as a “high density urban living and sustainable development.”

The city will not try to be the world’s most sustainable, but rather the one that has the smallest impact on the environment. According to Planetizen, it aims to reduce energy usage by 48%, water usage by 56%, carbon dioxide production by 60%, and landfill waste by 89%.

These targets will be achieved by reducing the amount of transport used in the city. The whole place has been designed to be entirely walkable, with all locations within 15 minutes’ walk of any part of the city.

The whole plot will be 3 square kilometres in total, with 320 acres for urban development, and 480 acres for landscaping.

The city is the first of its type to be suggested in China, and will be used as a model to be replicated in other locations around the country, with the aim of solving China’s problems with overburdened urban infrastructure, and high energy consumption.

The whole project should be finished within eight years, and will be built by Beijing Vanton Real Estate Co. Ltd.
