That one is really nice! The base could be better but the two floors above it look very authentic.

"New buildings built in traditional style" is the title of this thread!! This absolute aberration and simply hideous pile does not belong here. There is nothing "traditional" about it whatsoever. Please adhere to the principles of this interesting and informative thread.

Why Montreal? Can't think of any major building there anything like this monstrous aberration! As for the vulgar interior - words fail me! If you are thinking about Chateau Frontenac in Quebec (VAGUE resemblance) it's an affront to even being to compare them such is the vast superiority of the Frontenac in every conceivable way!

Yes, despite some mistakes I agree this is vastly superior to some of the horrendous manifestations of so-called "traditional" buildings going up in China at the moment. They would probably be better in adapting their own traditions in architecture if they want to re-create the past rather than ill informed attempts at Western styles.

OMG no no and no again!! Looks more like one of those o.t.t. efforts in one of the former Soviet Republics. A real mess I'm afraid - "Traditional Style" - definitely not!
