It seems that some supertalls and skyscrapers of Yujiapu District are already topped off, the rest are under construction.

Well, of course they are empty, the whole area is not finished. Sometimes I doubt if journalist get the concept behind these huge construction area's. They build everything first and only then they open up the whole area at once.

Also, I doubt that Tianjin is in dept.

And then lastly, the economic slowdown is actually quite good for the normal people. If they kept the same growth level as a few years ago (around 11%) food prices would be skyrocketing. That's why the chinese government try to slow down the economy deliberately. This (partly) is the effect of that.

The journalists in BBC and similar Western media units are not used to the idea of mass construction. Their understanding is limited to their homecountries' ideas where construction of new infrastructure, housing and offices only takes place once demand has far exceeded the supply and the market has already sunk in suppressed demand phase.

China is pursuing a slightly different strategy. Planning ahead and making it ready when (or slightly before) the actual demand has taken place. Some might argue which ideology is better overall but pursuing the strategy that is used in small and developed Western countries would be a nonsense in China.

Even despite such grand planning China is struggling from under capacity where demand exceeds supply. Railways is the primary case here. Even despite the rapid expansion of high speed railways some areas are still lacking capacity to satisfy the demand. So those questioning the need of large projects and developments in a country of this size should shut up or at least try to understand the idea.
