I'm not sure the name of it but I know it is right across the street from Chow Tai Fook Tianjin.

The building appears to me to be some sort of convention center, though I searched for Tianjin Binhai Convention Center and a different, larger building came up.

Internet censorship and air quality aren't on topic and irrelevant here. The ever-recurrent theme of ghost cities is (as long as applied to Binhai), probably to the frustration of several.

Being in the place on the planet with the fastest and greatest change in history is cool, even given the disadvantages (though I would would be more inclined towards cool tempered with caution).

Recently in Shanghai I spoke with a Czech Architect who has lived in China for the past 20 years. He showed me a map of how much China needs to build over the the next decades because it has so many people moving into cities. Its staggering. I wish I could have an image to show you.

Bottom line is Ghost Cities are nothing to worry about:

And I throw in two cents:

a) A lot of these huge projects are planned by government, including this one, after international competition that brings in experts from urban planning to architecture. Demand will be there and all it takes incentives to bring companies into these areas.

b) China builds everything in once on speculative terms, which is rare in the west, where everything is calculated for demand ahead of time and built build by building. That is why this piece of Tianjin is one complete construction site. And why other parts of China once finished look like a ghost town before people move in.

Although there may be few a few cases where a lower tier city builds an area that might not be filled up. Most including this one will be. It just takes a few years after project is completed.

China is definitely a great place to live and watch this growth!

Oh, I didn't want to revive the ghost city ghosts. I think all the good arguments on all sides have been recycled 4-5 times already, and the poor arguments several times that again. Unless/until somebody comes up with new information or numbers, I suggest we all just lean back and enjoy the show. Whatever the outcome, it is a good one.

Precisely. This is one reason I want to come here during my holidays. See the urban transformation unprecedented in history be it new buildings, city districts, new cities altogether or new transport projects. Even if there will be 'ghost' projects (Binhai is probably not one of them) we must keep in mind the amount of development going on. There will be errors and glitches when you build on such a scale. However we must see the context. The relative amount of unsuccessful projects is insignificant in the context of China.

At least there is work being done on the HSR station. If that isn't built, I doubt anyone would come to this area from Beijing.

I could not help but notice how the building grew back there. It's what made ​​the most progress.
