Check out China’s Manhattan themed financial district through these photos and video.
Yujiapu is China’s answer to Manhattan’s financial district. They are even building it to look the same. Yujiapu will have a replica of the Rockefeller Center, a pair of identical towers that resemble those of the original WTC, and a skyscraper that is set to be one of the tallest in the world. On what was an insignificant bend in the Hui River on the far outskirts of Tianjin only a handful of years ago is now the site of what is set to become the world’s largest financial center.
Editor’s note: the photos from this article were lost during a migration to the China Chronicle. I will add them again ASAP.
