In 2021, Tianhe had a total of 35 office buildings rated as super first-rate or first-rate business office buildings, accounting for 60 percent of the city's total awarded office buildings. Among them, 14 were awarded as super first-rate, making up 80 percent of the city's total.
Tianhe is a representative of the high-quality development of the building economy in Guangzhou, while the Tianhe central business district (CBD) is one of the three major CBDs in China.
It issued the Tianhe Standards to improve buildings' sustainable development in 2017, becoming the nation's first to implement sustainable building management in line with international and Hong Kong standards.
The standards were further improved in 2020 and included indicators like public health, waste classification, as well as 5G applications that reflect current social development requirements and national key development strategies.
Of the district's 124 awarded office buildings, 90 have an annual tax revenue of over 100 million yuan ($15.43 million). They have gathered 164 headquarters enterprises and attracted 259 projects invested in by 178 Fortune Global 500 companies.
