I think you miss the idea of how such urban developments are done in China. Mind you, not everything is done in the same way as in your neighborhood.

Most buildings have some sort of owner or achor tenant, mostly banks and other financial service businesses.

This Yujiapu area is intended for finance, there are some special incentives from the local goverment for the businesses who operate in Yujiapu. So it should make the area attractive for businesses to move in.

Tianjin reminds me of Shenzhen and Dubai. And also the landscape of this area with the river curve around a penisular makes it look like dockland in London,imo.Well done Tianjin!!!I think is only matter of time that Tianjin will exceed the economic size of Beijing and Shanghai by these kind of development,WWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW
wow! that's really kind of you to say this ,especially as a guangdongnese, we all know tianjin and shenzhen are competing to eatch other for the NO4,
and tianjin is keep trying to catch up with shenzhen and guangzhou, but seems you are very happy to see the development of this chaster and opponent,you let us know the mature and rational of guangdongese,good for you!
we are all chinese right? so of course we should have competition in economic developing, but the reason why we compete is to promot all of us, competition is good for promotion ,but don't let it hurt, or cause some dispute between us , because that's not the purpose of developing,and that should not be the reason why we compare our hometown to other place ether.

let us learn from guangdong friend!

I think the "Chinese" developers/investors are a bit more down to earth (think profit).

But a new highest building can mean lots of profit. For example out of tourism. May not be profit for the tower itself but it can be for a city.

Normally this "extra profit" isn't that high.
Normal people aren't so interested in skyscrapers, like we "nerds" are.

And a skyscraper built in this area/district is pretty meaningless as well.

Think Shanghai and JinMao

Kuala Lumpur and Petronas

Bank of China and Hong Kong

All meaningful locations and iconic because it defines the skyline

....? The shanghai Skyline.

Although the bottle opener is the one that defines shanghai at the moment. Jin Mao has been overshadowed. And bottle opener will be overshadowed by shanghai tower.

Look at the location and reconsider your question.

Yep, it is very real alright - just not 700m a t the moment. It's Rose Rock International Finance Center. The thread is here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=745900

It probably will be 588m and here's most likely design they have chosen. But it's still in early stage so the design still may change I think.

That's a nice design, much better than the 1 WTC look-a-like.

Sorry, picture didn't show the first time around...
What I mean is people look at the state of the area today (particularly how it typically filmed) think of it as an empty field. But give it a time - Pudong also used to be an "empty field" just 20 years ago.

Besides Tangu isn't all that empty even now. And in 10_ or so years it may have all the fame of Pudong!
