Tianjin, China / 天津,中国 (The world's biggest city you've never heard of) PART I: THE CITY

TIANJIN / 天津

Tianjin is a huge city that most of you probably haven't heard of, it has over 10 million official residents (plus many unofficial). I live there in the summer, and my last time spent there was in Summer 2007. I have many pics to show you of this unknown gigantic metropolis!!!!!


PART II: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=574882





(pics taken from the lawn are at the black arrow, pics taken from the highrise is red arrow)

New highrises on the east side of NanMenWai DaJie/ 南门外大街. This is built on the site of a demolished hospital.



New highrises on the north side of NanMa Lu/ 南马路 called Loving Central City or 中央公园城.









KFC!!!











A mosque.











[SIZE="4"]The next pics are taken from a Tianjin University/ 天津大学 highrise. These show a bird's eye view of Southwest Tianjin.







You can see downtown in the background here, through the smog.





























28th floor.

Those housing blocks are dreadful. Interesting to see that density can be just as bad as sprawl. Looks like with all the cranes, the city will continue to grow though. Thanks for sharing the photos.
