Tianjin Center is in fact under construction. It's being converted into a Raffles Hotel. The Tianjin WTC, on the other hand, is stalled, and probably won't be restarted all that soon.

Took a few photos of the area around the site today. They apparently changed the name of the place. It's now called Tianjin World Financial Center.

Wow, blue sky in Tianjin (early morning?), but slow progress ! Clashman, are you a nankai(南开大学) or tianjin(天津大学) university student in Tianjin (my house in Tianjin is at Tianjin university)?

No, but I take classes, (nominally), at TNU 天津师范大学, at the Balitai Campus. Tianjin's blue sky days are actually getting more and more regular, but there's still a long ways to go. Also, this was late afternoon, around 5, not early morning. The effect is still the same, though.

Yeah, I thought that because 29 out of 30 days I was there, there was smoggy sky except for the early morning.

Looks nice!

Does anyone know what project the row of towers on the right and the "Grande Arche" is? Is it just a vision, or actually a real plan?

I think that's actually being built, as well. The area from this picture:

is approximately where those buildings are supposed to be.

Also, on another similar note, I believe I saw some cranes going up over by where the Nanzhan/Kerry Center development is supposed to be rising.
