Just curious;

What prevented them from building around the old city center, instead of carving out an entire downtown area from scratch. Now, there has to be massive movement of people, businesses, organization to the Binghai district; and a lot of infrastructures have to be built anew. I understand the argument of planning and having tabula rasa to start out, but wouldn't building next to the old downtown area greatly ease the transition??

Once complete, Xiangluowan will host several thousand employees, which will in turn generate gargantuan traffic. Look at Moscow now, it is basically a standstill near MIBC hence they are planning some bridges and/or elevated roads.

Not several thousand but more like several hundred thousand.

Now the area just needs people. LOL.

Just amazing to see. Will these towers be filled by mostly state-owned companies?

Will there be shopping streets, shopping malls and fancy restaurants that will attract the youngsters?

And here's is a view from the antipodes (well, not really the antipodes, but anti definitely):
Northern China’s city of ghosts
Quote:
On the top floor of a riverside office tower a lone man stands smoking. It’s late afternoon and the hallways should be filled with the chatter and footsteps of workers leaving for the day. Yet, despite its marble floors, this prime office building in China’s newest financial district is silent.

The smoker is the only person to be seen in the building, which is one of 43 high-rise projects either completed or under *construction in this district dubbed “mini-Manhattan”. Officially it’s known as the *Binhai New Area CBD and it has the dubious distinction of being the country’s latest ghost town.

It was supposed to be northern China’s answer to financial districts in Shanghai and Shenzhen, but the early indications are not positive for this city centre, which was salt flats just three-and-a-half years ago. The smoker says he is one of only three tenants on the ninth floor of the Sino Trade Centre, which was completed eight months ago.

“There are a few more on the lower floors,” he says.

A walk through the building proves him correct, but only just. Of the roughly 500 offices available for rent, just 20 appear to be in use, equating to an occupancy rate of 4 per cent.

Things at the adjoining 46-level tower are only marginally better. The doorman says 20 per cent of the apartments are filled, while its 13 floors of office space look as empty as next door.

“I won’t even try to sell or lease a building in Binhai,” says Gao Fei, an analyst and sales manager at Centaline Property in the neighbouring city of Tianjin.

“There is just no demand. Not even God knows what will happen next.”

Such is the strange world of Chinese economics. In a market-based system, a higher power would not be required to predict the future. The answer would be simple: stop building.

Its way too early to know if this will be considered a failure. Its location is very central in relation to other major cities in the bohai rim so at least its a good location for a new city to pop up.

I know of a non-profit foreign organization that just got a free office space in Binhai. Looks quite desperate IMO.

Long-term, by which I mean something like 2030, I am sanguine. Binhai is basically Beijing-by-the-Bohai, some tens of millions will be moving to this region almost no matter what. Barring some hidden flaw, shoddy construction, vulnerability to natural disasters, planning shortcomings or similar, Binhai has a prime location (leaving aside that this still isn't quite by the sea). It will be a natural place to settle, with hopefully good infrastructure and services, possibly and hopefully with world class residential and commercial projects nearby.

From here to there seems a gamble. Getting too much property online too quickly may actually deter or at least delay such a future. A general slowdown in the Chinese economy, or one misstep too many locally, and people may stay away, leading to deterioration in services and maintenance, until eventually the cheap rent, boom times, and/or good communications lure enough people in.

Me too, I like this kind of conservative designs, in fact I really like the mixture of designs at Xiangluowan, not too flashy.

Yes, but I think some more colors are needed. Right now, it's all limestone brown and blue glass. I'm already glad it's not only glass but I would like to see some other tints. White, red, grey, etc.
