The UETD retirement community, the first large-scale retirement community in Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, is expected to open in October, 2019. Nine buildings are currently in the final phase of construction.

Located at White Bird Lake New Area in Urumqi Economic and Technological Development Zone (Toutunhe district), the UETD retirement community covers an area of 115 mu (7.67 hectares), with a total floor space of 149,000 square meters.

Upon completion, it will accommodate 2,300 people and offer various services in the areas of assisted living, entertainment, healthcare, and tourism.

The community will have a modern feel with apartments, kindergartens, stores, a community healthcare center, and an activity center which will include a dining hall, library, natatorium, health management center, several classrooms, and an all-purpose room.

"Unlike ordinary retirement homes, the UETD retirement community provides the elderly with home-based care and medical treatment. People can choose to buy or rent apartments, based on their needs," according to Zhang Aiping, president of Xinjiang Vital Development and Construction Group.

The positioning and sensory systems are an added convenience that help guarantee the residents' safety, along with a community medical center that offers comprehensive care.

The community began construction in May, 2016 and is expected to be completed by Jan 15, 2018, said Gao Zihang, a department head of the project.
