ONE of China’s smoggiest cities, Tianjin, is engaged in a painstaking battle against dust, the leading contributor to the city's PM2.5 concentration.

The city's construction sites covered a total area of 212 square kilometers in 2014, almost equal to the size of Shijiazhuang, capital city of nearby Hebei Province in north China, officials with Tianjin Environmental Protection Bureau said.

According to Wen Wei Po, the 3 buildings are 65/f each and exceeding 200m high : http://news.wenweipo.com/2015/12/09/IN1512090026.htm

Taxpayers pay the cost of corrupt construction
11 December 2015
China Daily




Source : Wen Wei Po

THREE HIGH-RISE apartment buildings nearing completion in North China's Tianjin municipality are to be demolished, because the buildings were in violation of their planning permission. In a comment, Guangzhou Daily condemns the waste of public money and resources, and urges stricter supervision:

Of course, the three illegally constructed buildings in Tianjin should be taken down. But those who bought apartments off-plan will find it hard to get their money back, and taxpayers will be paying the costs of demolition.

Therefore, it is worth finding out how the developer managed to bypass all the planning restrictions and redesign the construction at will. The constructed height of the three buildings would have put occupiers' lives at risk as a result, especially when the power is freely abused and exploited by some businessmen who care about profits rather than lives.

That the investor is being held criminally accountable, actually serves as a wake-up call to the supervisory authorities that the anti-graft movement must go further to nip corruption in the bud.

Such a waste of public resources could have been avoided. The rule of law needs to be applied, otherwise institutional reform will not curb corruption effectively.

Tianjin blast-damaged train station to be rebuilt

Reconstruction of a train station severely damaged in the fatal warehouse blasts in north China's Tianjin City last year will start in March, authorities said.

The Donghailu stop of a light-rail line linking downtown Tianjin and Binhai New Area, will be rebuilt at the original site, covering about 7,000 square meters, by February 2017, said a source with the construction and transportation bureau of Tianjin Binhai New Area.

Explosions tore through a container warehouse storing large amounts of toxic chemicals at the Tianjin port on Aug. 12. The station was only about 100 meters from the blast site.

The light-rail line suspended operations after the accident, but has been partially operational since Dec. 16.

Tianjin eco-friendly desalination project agreement signed
China Daily Excerpt
5 November 2016

Xianda (Tianjin) Seawater Resources Development Co Ltd, a water treatment technology provider, signed an agreement for the construction of the first zero-liquid discharge seawater desalination project in China on Wednesday.

The desalination project, based in Nangang Industrial Zone in Tianjin, was launched in 2014 with a total investment of 15 billion yuan ($2.2 billion). It received a first phase investment of 5.5 billion yuan in 2014 and is expected to become operational in 2019.

Xianda (Tianjin) is a wholly-owned subsidiary formed by Xianda Resources (Hong Kong) Co Ltd.

The construction agreement, signed between Xianda and the Nangang authority, is a build, own, operate public-private partnership, in which Xianda builds, owns and operates the project for a period of 50 years, with government support.

The project has strong backing from Malaysia. Prime Minister Najib Razak, who was at the signing of the construction agreement, lauded it as "an iconic project that makes Malaysians proud."

Xianda leads in designing and implementing "zero liquid discharge" facilities, which desalinate seawater into various usages for industrial consumption and also produce salts and various chemicals from concentrated brine water, thus preventing them from polluting the local marine ecological environment in Bohai Bay.

Mah Sau Cheong, chairman and CEO of Xianda Resources, said that his company will expand its engagement in the Chinese mainland by enhancing investment, increasing technology transfer, strengthening the responsibility of environment protection and engaging in corporate social responsibility.

"Nangang is a world-class petrochemical industrial zone in the collaborative development plan of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. We have the equipment and capability to design, build and operate the project and are capable of ensuring quality," said Mah.

The seawater desalination project provides various types of industrial water and basic raw materials for petroleum and heavy chemical projects in Nangang Industrial Zone.

Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei pool $15b rail fund to boost integration
April 19, 2017
China Daily Excerpt

Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province have set up a 100 billion yuan ($14.54 billion) joint railway fund to boost regional integration, authorities announced on Tuesday.

About 54 billion yuan, or 90 percent of the initial installment, comes from social capital with a time period of 10 years, according to Tianjin Daily.

The fund plans to invest 70 percent on inter-city railway construction, and the rest on land development along the routes.

Regional projects, including Beijing-Tangshan rail, Shijiazhuang-Hengshui-Cangzhou rail, and a second one connecting Beijing and Tianjin, which stops at Binhai New Area, will start construction this year.

Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Railway Investment Co, the lead coordinator of the fund, signed agreement with 12 financial institutions, including the country's big five banks, Ping An Asset Management Co, and Capital Development Investment Fund Management Co in Beijing.

The fund is part of year-long effort by local authorities to renovate financing model in railway construction and attract social capital under market mechanism.

In all, Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei will see an addition of nine inter-city rail lines by 2020, with a total estimated investment of 247 billion yuan, according to a notice released by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC).

China's Copy of Manhattan Is No Longer a Ghost Town
Bloomberg Excerpt
‎May‎ ‎17‎, ‎2017‎

When Zhang Zhenhua arrived to Tianjin in 2014 to take on a job as a security guard at a luxury apartment complex, he didn’t expect to work in a surreal ghost town of vacant office canyons and half-finished high-rises.

Yet that’s pretty much what Zhang, who hails from a village in nearby Hebei, encountered when he reported for duty in Tianjin’s Xiangluowan district, the epicenter of the northern port city’s audacious proposal to create a 1.59 square kilometer replication of Manhattan. "The place was empty," Zhang recalled. "I could barely see anyone on the street."

The unreal emptiness of China’s vision of a new Manhattan and other mega-city developments has drawn unflattering international press coverage and come to symbolize the folly and financial risks of debt-fueled infrastructure projects and runaway urbanization.

There still may still be a financial reckoning for Tianjin looming in the future, but right now there are green shoots of economic life in the urban districts at the center of the city’s unprecedented construction boom.

Zhang, now 27, still has his job. The once empty skyscrapers, vacant office towers and unfinished hotels and apartments are gradually filling up amid the central government’s renewed push to refashion the city into a crucial gateway for a revitalized Northern China.

"They’re not full, but are increasingly occupied," said Michael Hart, a managing director at real-estate broker Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. in Tianjin. "They’re mostly government driven, but there are signs private industries are coming."

In the Binhai district, empty offices are filling up with staff from private companies as well as employees of some of the biggest state-owned enterprises, such as China National Chemical Corp., railcar manufacturer CRRC Corp., and China Poly Group Corp., a conglomerate with businesses ranging from explosives manufacturing to real estate.

It’s more challenging in Tianjin’s central business district, where office buildings have a 40 percent vacancy rate and another 300,000 square meters of supply will hit the market this year, according to property consultant Savills Plc. CBRE Group Inc. estimates even more new supply: 1,266,000 square meters this year and in 2018.

Still, the uptick in occupancy across some of the hardest hit areas is encouraging for policy makers whose ambition to build a massive new office district stirred worries about the debt risks from the recent investment boom now that growth has moderated from the double-digit pace of years past.

While many local governments across the country are struggling with heavy dependence on debt-fueled growth, Tianjin benefits more than almost any city from its position at the vanguard of two of the country’s biggest national projects.

Port City

One is the Belt and Road Initiative to open up new trade routes across Asia and to Europe and Africa, a massive spending project that will benefit a port city like Tianjin. The other is the government’s push to link Tianjin with neighboring Beijing and surrounding Hebei province to create a megacity of 100 million.

A key part of the city’s soaring ambition is the waterfront on the Bohai Sea, where sprawling industrial zones are home to rail yards linking it to Eastern Europe and northern China’s largest port, where container ships and car carriers link it with the rest of the world.

"We want the city to become one of the world’s largest ports like Singapore or Hong Kong," said Xiao Sheng, vice director of the free trade zone in Tianjin. "We want to develop a new business and development model that could be promoted to other regions in China."

Airbus Plant

Tianjin, a city of 14.7 million that’s a half-hour bullet train ride southeast of Beijing, was allowed to set up the free-trade zone in 2014 to attract investment. Airbus SE opened a finishing plant for narrow-body jets in a free-trade zone almost a decade ago and last year it broke ground on a final-assembly plant in Tianjin for wide-body aircraft.

The city also plans to raise 100 billion yuan ($14.5 billion) to encourage investments in advanced industries including high-end manufacturing and aerospace in the city 137 kilometers southeast of capital Beijing.

Airbus opens first wide-body site outside Europe in Tianjin
Xinhua Excerpt

TIANJIN – Airbus Wednesday inaugurated its A330 Completion and Delivery Center (CDC) in Tianjin, north China, marking the first such center for its wide-body aircraft outside Europe.

As a global aeronautics leader, Airbus is taking further steps to expand its global footprint and strategic partnership with China, the company said.

"The inauguration of our A330 CDC in Tianjin, together with the first of many deliveries, marks a milestone for Airbus' international footprint and underlines the strong spirit of cooperation with our Chinese partners," said Fabrice Bregier, Airbus chief operating officer (COO) and president of Commercial Aircraft.

"Completing wide-body aircraft in China is an Airbus, and an industry, first which demonstrates our mutual commitment to a strong and growing Chinese aviation sector," Bregier said.

Airbus Wednesday also delivered its first A330 jointly completed by European and Chinese staff to Tianjin Airlines. This aircraft was completed in Toulouse, France.

It is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, with a two-class configuration of 260 seats in total.

The A330 CDC will employ more than 250 people and will be able to deliver two aircraft per month by early 2019, according to Airbus.

The center is located at the same site as the Airbus Tianjin A320 Family Final Assembly Line and Airbus Tianjin Delivery Center, which were established in 2008.
