Curious, has anyone moved in yet? How's the HSR station?

Powerlong Center mall has opened. The HSR station is almost done and will be completed this year. Cladding is wrapping up on most towers. I hope most towers open this year but progress has been slow.

I was reading some articles about this project, and it looks like people aren't very optimistic about the future of this development. What will most likely happen in ten years when the Chinese market bubble pops? Will most of this be complete by then or will it be similar to Dubai and a lot of buildings won't rise? Sorry, I'm sure this has been discussed a lot already in this thread.

China will be the world's biggest economy by a large margin within the next few decades. An economy that size will need many world-class CBDs. This is by far the most important CBD being developed in north China, one that is very large, well-designed, and purpose-built. China's growth and success would have to falter badly in order for this project to fail long-term.

Right now infrastructure for the zone (roads, parks, underground malls, HSR station, etc) is still largely under construction, so most of the buildings are left unfinished until that is completed.

My only concern about this development is commuter rail/metro services which connect the area with Tianjin and other nearby areas. That kind of location needs a truly comprehensive transport system. I mean something like what is planned for Shenzhen Qianhai Bay CBD with numerous metro lines and stations.

There is a 299.45m and a 289.9m actively U/C. Of course the idea was to provide a compilation thread for one of the biggest high-rise CBDs U/C anywhere. But there is obvious reluctance to commit to building more towers including supertalls for now.

HSR will make a huge difference

Below is a link for the Binhai New Area, worth checking out.

with R&F, the centerpiece of xiangluowan having really slow construction phases. sino-steel being purposefully on hold to continue after more towers in the area are complete and some projects like glorious oriental twins being topped out but uncladded for over a year already, i certainly hope they do not start more tall towers, but instead kick some asses on slow ones for them to finish first On the otherside of the river in Yujiapo it's the same, powerlong might be on hold or progressing extremely slow and that so close before topping out. Yinglan IFC only grew like 1 or two floors in the last 3 months as well. I grow rather worried, not that it will all turn on hold, but that this will just take ages to get done. starting everything at once might have been as slow as if it started in smaller phases. After all, CTF is not far away, but outside this two-CBD cluster and is doing really well.

i certainly hope once some more of the smaller towers are done, these projects will speed up again. It also seems like that most projects here are on hold for some time and U/C a bit and then on hold again. None of these projects is on hold for good it seems. well except sino steel, which i still believe is intended to rise in a later phase because surrounding towers were slower than expected.

We need to remember that both Xianglouwan and Yujiapu were just getting started as recently as 2010/2011. We should continue to be patient. I have no doubt that both districts will be completed by 2020, maybe closer to 2025. Then we can finally no longer have to see outside media cast Yujiapu as a poster CBD for ghost cities in China.

Transport links are the key. What's the situation with the railway station? Local commuter lines?

Please don't ban me, but seriously? If someone has a difference of opinion they just get banned due to the whims of the moderator. I could see this in a Chinese forum, but this is an international forum. Sure there are trolls, but people should be able to say negative things about a project to a degree.

I might be a little negative about this project and the Zun in Beijing, but that is my personal opinion. I think a lot of other projects in China are good and I take pics and contribute. To just ban someone because you don't like what they say is well.....Barbaric.

I don't have banning powers. That was a re-registered troll. If you can actually read before spouting off, you can see that I never threatened to ban anyone at any point. I like a lot of your posts and the unique viewpoint you bring to this forum. You need to simmer down.
