"The starting zone (National Information Innovation Park) has attracted 277 key enterprises in core areas such as core chips, basic software, system integration, and network security. Just last year, 63 new companies joined," says the spokesperson of Tongming Lake Information City. 

Currently, the area of 1.3 million square meters around the information city lake has the conditions for settlement, offering industrial plants, youth apartments, office spaces, etc.

"Minghu Butler" is not an individual but a system. Through one Minghu Butler service mechanism, six types of business services, and numerous service products, it turns the full life cycle and all elements of enterprise service into standardized processes.

Tongming Lake Business Harbor benchmarks against commercial features like the Solana Shopping Mall, focusing on configuring quality dining, business services, leisure and entertainment, and cultural life. It continuously enriches new retail, 24/7 transportation, self-service coffee, and other young and dynamic functions.

The ongoing integrated urban development plan is based on the overall consideration of the eastern part of E-Town New Area, covering an area of approximately 58 square kilometers, including the areas around Taihu Lake and Majuqiao.

In terms of ecological construction, the plan includes creating a multi-layered forest, sparse forest grass slopes, tree-lined avenues, sunny lawns, wetland shallows, flower fields, water lily ponds, and artificial wetlands, providing suitable habitats for various bird species.

"We will establish a 'Two Lakes, Three Parks' layout (Two Lakes: Tongming Lake, Jiahui Lake; Three Parks: Information Innovation Park, Integrated Circuit Design Park, International Data Park), attracting cutting-edge industrial projects, promoting coordinated development in the area.
