Impressive landscaping and green spaces along the river.

How about across the river? Right side?

[QUOTE=CrystalPhoenix;133360240]How about across the river? Right side?

The right side of the river in this photo is tanggu which is extremely busy. I worked there until last October. It used to take 45 minutes to get from central tanggu (not that far from the river) back to second avenue in TEDA during rush hour because the traffic barely moves.

Tanggu is a historic area, famed for its sea food and local dialect. I don't know the population, but many hundreds of thousands of people live there as a bare minimum and apart from the expanding suburbs under construction, it is absolutely full to the brim with people.

It's very easy to see a photo of somewhere on the other side of the world and get an impression from it, but the reality is often very far removed from the perception.

As for yujiapu, I was there yesterday to go to the global go mall. Progress is slow/on hold for some of the buildings whilst others are flying up. It's certainly not a ghost town, it's simply incomplete. The shopping mall was absolutely rammed full of people yesterday and no parking spaces available.

For those worried about this, Yujiapu is not a ghost town and is getting more not less busy.

It will be a handful of years until it starts to resemble being as busy as older areas like tanggu though

Was there last week and will be back tomorrow.

A small but steady stream of workers busy around lots of the various sites

Build build build!

This point keeps being brought up

As someone who lives 5 minutes away by car I can confirm it is not a ghost town. Most of the buildings are not finished yet. Many buildings which are finished and open appear to have people working there and the area itself gets busier each month

It will be years until the whole area is entirely finished and occupied but the trend is moving in that direction slowly but surely

I was there yesterday and was able to confirm that some small external work was going on with the twin towers. I'm not architect (town planner by education) so I couldn't tell specifically what they were doing, but they appeared to be installing some white piping on the outside frame of the building. There were at least 2 teams of people working on this on one of the towers, whilst I didn't manage to see people working on the other - but the other tower already appeared to have these pipes installed

Needless to say thankful for seeing some progress

The point keeps getting bought up because most people on this thread have never to Tianjin maybe not China so cannot speak from first hand experience
Their views and beliefs about the outside world are shaped by the media. The media can paint any picture they want to, this is only an issue when you use reality to challenge perception.

Yeah I get that, but the point has already been addressed in the thread. I even put a comment about it and the next comment replying said they're worried it will be a ghost town

We can all look at a couple of photos of a place on the other side of the world and reach these judgements but when people who literally live there are explaining its not actually quite true it's worth them paying attention!

Most people resent having their own ignorance pointed out to them.

Been there, I can attest it is ghostlike. They need to do what Zhengzhou did to their ghost town and force companies to move into it. Now Zhengzhou CBD is only a ghost town on the weekends.

Definitely not a success so far compared to expectations. It's not completely abandoned but that's a very low bar to pass.

It would've been naive of anyone to think that tianjin was going to open a massive commercial district like this over the space of a few years and immediately fill it and have it bustling. They will surely have hoped for better (who doesn't?) but no one serious about property could have seriously expected this to be flourishing in such a short time.

The area has gotten progressively busier but most of the buildings still aren't entirely finished.

It will happen.

Yes, I'm sure it will be fine. Plans might have been too ambitious for 2010 but East Asia is getting there at some point inevitably.

Just remember, you're dealing with a post-truth audience and society here. It doesn't matter what the facts are, only what people complicitly want them to be.
