Service-outsourcing companies assembled in TEDA mainly engage in BPO, ITO, IC design, E-commerce, and information security, etc. Supported by the relevant policies of the management committee of TEDA, they have gained a certain scale. Construction of the service-outsourcing base will provide an even better platform for the development of these companies.

The total area of TEDA's service-outsourcing base is about 890,000m2 and designed by Land Design, Inc. of America. The design concept is to build a pleasant work environment and let people enjoy life in work. There are complete commercial, recreational and exercise facilities in the park and a circular driveway develops around building and auxiliary commercial areas. Grassy landscapes will also be plotted throughout the middle of the whole park, and single buildings are arranged around the floating public landscape in a bid to build a modern service-outsourcing park that integrates work, life, leisure and recreation.

The construction area of TEDA's service-outsourcing base is about 1.52 million m2 and its plot rate is 1.7, which is mainly divided into three big functions: the industrial area (about 780,000 m2), apartments and the auxiliary commercial area (about 540,000 m2) and finally land for flexible use and auxiliary commercial facilities (about 200,000 m2). Building sizes in various function areas are arranged in differently, according to their grades, in order to create an alternatively interchanging space.

Road traffic networks have been designed to design adopt a circular driveway system with terminals, which ensure rapid circulation on the main ring road and reduces interference with organizations in the park. The grades of the roads in the whole park are clear-cut and clearly stratified, and reflect the design principles of convenience and high-efficiency. Pedestrians and vehicles are separated properly in order to prevent the green landscape from being interfered with by motor vehicles and to maintain the relative continuity and completeness of the green ecosystem.

A long green landscape also extends from the central landscape axial line in the urban public center to the industrial park, introducing an urban and public space system. Green open spaces and the arrangement of organizations have been comprehensively considered to realize functions of the green land in connection with the ecology, protection, landscape, sports and leisure needs of the park.
