Tianjin's Manhattan Still Empty

Channel News Asia: China's plans for financial district in Tianjin remain in question
China’s US$50 billion replica of Manhattan in the northern port city of Tianjin still lies mostly unfinished and empty nearly a decade after construction began.

Several reports have labelled the development in Yujiapu a ghost town. Others however argue that it could achieve its goals over time.

It is being billed as China’s version of the Big Apple. But 8 years after construction began, many of the buildings appear unfinished. Some construction sites have been abandoned, while the streets are deserted.
