Manhattan

Location: Tianjin, China

Year built: 2019

While Mayor Bloomberg is calling for the demolition of Midtown East, in order to compete with the sky-scrappers of Asia, China is constructing a mini-Manhattan in Tianjin. The project had a projected completion date in 2019, as it is the largest scale construction. Contributing to the excessive construction in China, it is fact that this town is not being developed to cater to a specific need in the country for office space, but is simply part of their strategy to boost GDP.
