Tianjin's architecture is so much like American cities...and the density is similar...This part of tianjin doesn't look like a chinese city to be honest

No, it's typical Chinese, but new one, stylish, and elegant. And Chinese cities look to me much more interesting and convenient than American cities.

Seems like the towers on this side are nearly finished.

The greenery gives it so much life, it doesn't look like an inception limbo anymore. Now those buildings need to be filled with people. The place is surreal.

Agreed, but it's fascinating to watch. Here's a fairly objective report on Tianjin's CBDs.

It seems that there will be demand, but it's a long term story, depending on amongst others,population growth.

Funny they should mention Caofeidian (Tangshan), and that it will link up with the Tianjin metro system, which was news for me. I pinged this about a month ago, before the desalination plant announcement, to no response.

Long term there is no chance it won't fill up, given the central location and infrastructure (assuming it won't sink into the swamp or some other unforeseen disaster). But many projects of this kind have struggled for 5-10-20 years before getting to that point. Should something like this happen here, it would be a drain on the economy.

Very promising update! They are building high-rise residential near by. Residents = more demand for other amenities like shopping, schools and restaurants.

they rise fast, but then take really long to get cladding up is my feeling. for the tallest buildings, R&F Tower also seems to be still in normal progressing, although it is hard to say with not too many updates, but from last year to march this year, the progress was really good. for yujiapo, powerlong center is powering thru and growing as well, yinglan ifc being really slow though. sadly if many projects progress slow it also means the currently halted projects like sino steel and rose rock will also take longer to start up again, since they seem to wait for the buildings around to be finished before starting.

I get the feeling that if we fill up this place with Beijing's government offices and link it with a high speed rail line, it would solve several congestion problems in the capital and bring life to this place at the same time. Wishful thinking of course.

There is not enough supply of new office space in Beijing, perhaps the high prices in Beijing will divert some of the demand to Tianjin?

That is the hope. I've heard Beijing has a vacancy rate around 2 or 3%. It's a ridiculously tight market there. But the construction delays have really hurt them.

In a way Binhai is Beijing-by-the-sea (if we ignore that it isn't actually by the sea, but in the marshlands near the sea).

The value and attraction of the Bohai sea will naturally stretch a bit of Beijing in a south-eastern direction, and the high-speed backbone helps keeping the distances short. However Guomao, Beijing CBD, isn't actually close to the Beijing South station, so the kind of businesses that naturally cluster around Guomao wouldn't naturally stretch to Binhai. Tianjin CBD is much closer to Binhai CBD, Xiangluowan, and a more natural stretch. In theory you could go from Tianjin CBD to Xiangluowan and back again in a long lunch break.

There will be HSR station in Binhai CBD. What other transport links will be there besides expressways in the long term? I suppose there will be metro. What about some fast commuter railways connecting it to the nearby region and other main parts of Tianjin?
