The MSD under construction will be 'the most expensive one-square-mile area in Binhai'.

TEDA plans to complete the construction of the Modern Service District (MSD) in three years.

Highlighting financial services, the MSD is expected to accommodate and enhance the development of a modern service industry in TEDA.

Endowed with responsibility to support the financial services industry, the MSD will create a value chain of financial and other services, focusing on corporate headquarters, based on financial institutions and supported by advisory institutions.

Honored as "the most expensive one-square-mile area in Binhai", the MSD is situated in the center of Binhai New Area.

The new business district will be home to dozens of international Grade-A business complexes, covering a total floor area of 1.34 million sq m.

The first phase, covering 160,000 sq m in floor space, will be put into use in August. The whole project is expected to be completed in 2011.

With a mature urban environment, the MSD is packed with supporting facilities in healthcare, education, entertainment, hotel, exhibition and high-end residences. The TEDA administrative committee is also in the center of the MSD.

The new business district will include 860,000 sq m of office space and 150,000 sq m of commercial facilities.

Through partnership with Savills, the leading international property services provider, the MSD will create a world-class business district with international advanced service procedures and a rigorous management system.

With the high-end commercial property covering a total floor area of 150,000 sq m, the MSD provides businesspeople with a thriving urban center combining shopping, restaurant, leisure and entertainment facilities.

All the international Grade-A office buildings in the district are built by LEED standards developed by the US Green Building Council. Adhering to the green and low-carbon concept, the eco-friendly technologies, such as low-e glass curtain wall, ice-storage air conditioning system, solar energy and ground source heat pump, are extensively used and the overall greening rate is over 40 percent.

In zones A and B , all the buildings are designed and built in compliance with LEED Gold-certified standard.
