Eco-city introduces a new type of urban development mode which considers social, environmental and economic aspects. Comparing to other green building projects, the development of Eco-city involves boarder urban settings. There is no formal evaluation tool for measuring the gains and losses of different stakeholders in the context of an Eco-city project. Cost benefits analysis (CBA) for Eco-city could provide better understanding of economic feasibility and social benefits of project. There is little literature on CBA for Eco-city, thus three qualitative research methods are applied, observation, literature study and interview. Also, the unique identity of the author, fully involved in the development of Eco-city in China, provides the opportunity in investigate the research question with observation and interview. To conduct CBA for Eco-city, the stakeholder framework is prepared in this paper. Based on the output and interpretive results from the qualitative methods, we show a Eco-city stakeholder framework. The framework illustrates every cost and benefit for stakeholder, providing stakeholders a clearer picture of their cost and benefits. The integrated costs benefits are generated for the system. The establishment of this framework clarifies interactions among stakeholders and gives financial stakeholders a better understanding of their investment benefits and risks. It can also act as a decision-making tool for financial stakeholders as well as policy maker in the future.
