Great logic..

It should look like this now... the just use your imagination how traffic will be when hundreds of thousands of new jobs are created.
You can't figure this out for yourself ? No cars means no reason to be there. I live in China and can assure you that plenty of people here have cars. If there are no cars then that's because nobody is going to the buildings. Seeing cars means there's a better likelihood that there are people in those buildings.

This isn't rocket science.

Nothing yet on Yujiapu high speed railway station opening. It was scheduled to begin operation by end of August.

Sad to say this this but the time has come, to be honest I feel that this area is becoming ghost town...

Why would a massive construction site give any reason to be there?

The CRH trains to Yujiapu have started, but only 5 a day from Beijing and 11 in total. Times seem a little slow (c. 1 hour from Beijing, 23 to 35 mins from Tianjin proper).

It's looking really good! Nice looking buildings, but it could use a bit more trees on the sidewalks. The parks look great

Compared to most other CBD's, this is still very much a ghost town. How many of those buildings are finished? How many are fully occupied? There is some traffic on the streets for once, so there's some improvement. But the fan boys really gotta take off their beer goggles.

not to mention, a lot of the traffic seems to be cabs and buses passing by. This CBD doesn't appear to be a popular destination yet. Maybe in a few years.

perhaps you could begin by answering some of your own questions, what is the occupancy rate? Is the absence of facts there are only opinions, fully occuppied ? We should be more concerned with the rate of ownership not occupation. If the area has a high level of ownership then the rate of occupation is less important. Families often buy a second or third house as an investment often not occupied on a full time basis

The fact is attempting to do so big ,small minded people will always criticize you that's what makes them small minded in the first place.

It's my understanding these are mostly office buildings. Supposedly to be leased to state owned companies and foreign ones. I've read older articles stating just one building was finished at the time, and only partially leased. That's out of date now obviously. So I asked for others to provide some tangible proof that these buildings aren't just empty hulks.

And I don't think that's just an opinion or small minded. You can dodge the occupancy question all you want.

Is it different compared to other CBDs at the same stage of development?

It's still way too early to call it a "ghost city". People used to say the same thing about New Ordos (Kangbashi New Area), which had a population of only 30,000 people a few years ago. Nowadays, Kangbashi New Area has a population of 100,000 people.

The point is, it's only a matter of time before these so-called "ghost cities" get filled up with people.

TIANJIN | Yujiapu Business District | U/C

I'll agree it takes time. Shanghai's Lujiazui district comes to mind.

But this area is years behind schedule. It's just very disappointing. It doesn't seem well thought out.

It might have been a little bit early for Tianjin but I'm glad they started the development early, this area has been transformed and it leaves a large development area for one of the world's most impressive CBDs to grow into over the next few decades. Imagine Yujiapu in 2050.

we maybe should make a list or map of all the projects in this area and the current status. many projects it possible to compare the last two updates for example and realize they only got 1 floor done every 2 months etc. this would maybe clear up how slow or fast it is going in reality.
