The Tianjin Binhai Master Plan transforms a 140-hectare (343-acre) industrial port into a distinctive international gateway and livable community. The waterfront site borders the Binhai International Airport and is adjacent to three separate coastal districts: Tanggu, Hangu and Dagang. The design envisions a dynamic 21st century international city that merges financial activity, entertainment and leisure, culture and arts, community amenities, technology, and sustainability. The master plan fosters synergistic connections between each district, with surrounding neighborhoods and parks, and between key landmark destinations. Two distinct commercial zones anchor the northern and southern points of the city and are linked by a park that emphasizes connectivity and environmental preservation. The northern zone is defined by a higher density and massing and includes government complexes, hotels, museum, convention center, residential high rises, and several commercial office towers. Cultural, educational, and recreational uses are planned for the southern zone, allowing a distinct connection to the central green space and taking full advantage of the waterfront edge.
