When I was making my maps, I considered whether or not to make Binhai separate because of the distance. It is further away from Tianjin proper than Shenzen is from Hong Kong! Actually a better comparison would probably be Seoul and Incheon because Hong Kong is actually completely separated from Shenzen.
Binhai is planned as a massive expansion of Tianjin toward the sea, it is most certainly part of Tianjin though of course the scale of this expansion is mind-boggling to most (thousands of square km)

Barbaric Manchurian is of course correct that Binhai is completely a part of Tianjin. Just look at TEDA which accounts for almost of all Binhai, the T in TEDA stands for Tianjin. The Xianglouwan and Yujiapu districts are both part of the Tianjin Binhai New Area. The Port of Tianjin is east of Binhai so how would the place in the middle not be Tianjin.

Back to topic, how many underground floors will this have? Hopefully just three, nice to workers on site and all the excavators.

Are those friction piles?

How deep do they extend into the ground?

I've been wondering for a while now. Why are they constructing these circular foundations for nearly (if not) all constructions in China??

Quite simple, actually. A circular shape prevents the walls of the pit from collapsing. The weight of the soil causes a lot of stress in the ground, which make deep pits with straight walls prone to collapsing. However, a circular wall spreads the stress evenly along the edge of the pit, so it will be more stable overall. It's the same principle that makes it so hard to break an egg by squeezing it. There are no "weak points" to attack, like corners or big flat surfaces.

Actually we could ask how is that posible that they keep using non circular foundations elsewhere.

^Rather, a circular pit isn't that necessary unless the pit is quite deep, which mostly only goes for 600+ m towers. Also, soil conditions might differ from place to place.

Square pits are also easier to dig and to get ramps into than circular ones. Prefabricated elements for a straight ramp can be used anywhere, but circular ramps have to be modified to fit the size of the hole, which differs between projects.

Some members complain that all of these holes in China look the same, but what is beginning to happen is that workers on projects are taking these skills and bringing them to every corner of China. You will begin to see these construction methods all over the country in the next few years.
