The Sino-Singapore Nanjing Eco Hi-tech Island is set to be an island showcasing the future of Nanjing and its aspirations to be a centre for the development and practice of high-tech innovation in areas such as IT services, eco-environmental service, modern service industry and modern agriculture service industry.
The location of the Eco Hi-tech Island, Jiangxinzhou, lies 6.5 kilometres from Nanjing's downtown area and is linked to Nanjing's new central business district, the Hexi New Town. Designated one of four "green lungs" of Nanjing, the island is considered a National Grade 'AA' scenic area.
Half of the island's 1,500 hectares will undergo urban development with the remaining area conserved for eco-tourism. 180 hectares of land are earmarked for the development of office space to house creative and innovative design firms. An additional 182 hectares amid the island's water canals and lush greenery are earmarked for residential development.
The exploration of environmentally-friendly features such as water reclamation and green energy will also strengthen the ecologically-conscious emphasis of the development. The Eco Hi-tech Island will unveil a garden city of the future, characterised by economic advancement and sustainable development.
