If "all projects in Xiangluowan/Yujiapu area are stoped" is a rumor.

Tianjiner only need post one new photo about there,why they can't post even one new photo?They post many photos each month in 2011&2012,but now they all disappeared!

We have threads for both districts that show more or less recent progress. Yujiapo thread has been updated January i think. Can't check so easily on phone now though.

No one say Tianjin is a ghost city.Tianjin is a megacity—— in fact a mega factory which lived 10 million blue collar workers.

But in Xiangluowan/Yujiapu ,no one live or worked there(except less and less constrction workers),it's not ghost city,it is only a ruin,because it will never completed and almost all buildings have no clad! Naked Xiangluowan"CBD"

Please see that Tianjiner,he can't post even one new photo about Xiangluowan/Yujiapu,why?

Tianjin's city planning is horrendous, imo. There are these CBD's, the one with Golden Finnanca 117, and downtown, and all are separate. I know it doesn't work that way, but if they had concentrated their efforts towards only building up downtown, they could have one of the better skylines in China. They planned too many far and out megaprojects, ex. CTF Tower, R&F Tower, GF117, Rose Rock IFC, and others.
Hopefully they can eventually work everything out so that the city has a balanced skyline.

Making one huge CBD with a bunch of megatowers would create a traffic nightmare.

I don't see a problem with spreading these districts around. Tianjin proper is fairly dense and has a decent skyline already. We need to remember that Tianjin is a municipality and therefore has a larger territory than many other Chinese cities.
Beijing, for example, doesn't have a very compact skyline either maybe since it is a municipality as well and covers a larger territory.

Yes, and not buildng everything in one place keeps the real estate prices at least a little bit down.

I don't think creating a 'skyline' is the ultimate goal of city planners. Let alone that creating one massive downtown in any of the Chinese megacities would create unsolvable challenges with traffic and public transit. China is implementing a model of multiple downtowns which is better suited for very large cities. Shenzhen must be a textbook example of that. Other cities are doing it too including Tianjin.

I'm not against that, but if they are going to build multiple CBD's, then they should plan them out as to not make them too far apart or too large so as to make them incongruous or unfinishable. Besides, as long as it is suitably spread out, a single large CBD shouldn't cause that many infrastructure problems.
And lastly, I did say I know it doesn't work that way, I was just giving my opinion on what would look aesthetically superior.

CTBUH recorded 8 150+ meters buildings being completed in Tianjin in 2013.

CTBUH recorded 7 150+ meters buildings being completed in North America in 2013.

Facts don't excatly back up that Tianjin construction is at a stand still.....

For the purposes of this conversation I'll only point out that "downtown" is a concept that is not particularly popular outside of Western countries of the old colonial variety for the most part.

That said ,it's not a case of poor planning at all. Quite the opposite. What you really mean is that you don't think it looks the way you prefer.

In Tianjin's Xiangluowan/Yujiapu,most buildings will not clad for ever,like this 2:

They will be largest tombstone of the Tianjin goverment!

In mega factory Tianjin,T/O means stop and death...

Tianjin to set up EV charging facilities in highway service areas

TIANJIN, Apr. 9 (Xinhua) – The Tianjin municipality in north China is to equip its highway service areas with charging facilities for electric vehicles, in a bid to facilitate the operation of pure electric vehicles between Beijing and Tianjin, said a source with the municipal science and technology commission.

Construction on theses facilities has started.

BEIJING, Apr. 22 (Xinhua) -- China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) announced on Tuesday that it has launched Tianjin LNG expansion project, and Tianjin's LNG output is expected to reach 8 billion cubic meters each year when the project completes by the end of 2016.

From the look of it, it appear Tianjin will the financial center of Northern China. If that really happens, the CBD will be filled. I don't know if you have notices, there really isn't a whole lot of projects in Beijing recently.

It seems Beijing finally realized trying to be a political center, a financial / commercial center, a cultural center and a industrial center is not a good idea given how congested it is already. We have already seen the bulk of Beijing's heavy industry moving to Tangshan, perhaps after completion of Tianjin's CBD, the bulk of Beijing financial sector will start to move to Tianjin. While Beijing will only be the political and cultural center.

Xiangluowan should have 2 stations from Z1 and B2, while Yujiapu should be a hub between B2, Z1, Z4 as well as Beijing-Tianjin intercity HSR extension (which is nearing completion, with Yujiapu as its terminus). However all Z and B line are just in planning stages, so it would be quite a while (the completion date is planned to be 2020) before they will be finished.
