Both design and purportedly name are weird, but hey, I like the pagoda-like apartments on the background!

I would conjecture that this is being built to get the farmers to live in the apartments and demolish all the farmhouses to get more land to do planting of crops.

I love the design. The concept is interesting - it's kind of like replacing a farming village surrounded with farming fields with a smaller floorplate farming skyscraper with many more fields surrounding it. Interesting concept and I would approve of it as an experiment to see what happens but in this case I disapprove because of the kitsch ball sitting on top of the buildings - i mean, there's nothing to see but lots of fields! I like the decks all the way up which would maybe act as outdoor plazas as well as bridges linking the towers and community together. Interesting.

Wuxi is 1-grade city, Jiang yin is the 2-grade city of Wuxi, while Huaxi is a village of Jiang yin, however, it is one of the richest villages in China, it is really big, but still taken as a village.

i've been to this village several times, they build villas for every family for free, and in 2002, they send every family a car for free. the villager's income reach 30000 usd a year. lol
