Singbridge International Singapore Pte Ltd (Singbridge) has set up an Economic Promotion Unit (EPU) division, to promote and facilitate participation by Singapore firms in its overseas projects, starting with the Guangzhou Knowledge City (GKC). The GKC, a Singapore-China joint enterprise, is a multibillion-dollar eco-city project to be built on a 123 sq km site in Guangzhou. It is intended as a sustainable city attracting knowledge-based industries and skilled workers.
Elmich Pte Ltd is amongst the first cluster of twelve Singaporean small and medium-sized enterprises who have signed Letters of Intent with Singbridge on 26th April 2011 to provide products and services for the start-up residential project in the GKC. The residential project will have a gross floor area of more than 268,000 sq m, and create some 2,000 smart-eco homes and a signature clubhouse. To be jointly developed by Singbridge and Wing Tai Holdings, it will be designed by world-renowned Foster + Partners, and be built in phases over five years on a 10-hectare site.
Singbridge International Singapore Pte Ltd invests in, develops and manages integrated cities and sustainable urban solutions overseas, leveraging on Singapore’s successful development experience. This initial in-road into China and possible other subsequent joint-venture projects by Singbridge in China will form the platform for Elmich to engage, expand and build track record in China.
