7. China’s ‘Knock-off’ of the Big Apple
While Moscow is home to seven doppelgängers of the same New York City building, China is welcoming an entire duplicated city. Construction began in 2008 for Yujiapua, a $50 billion “knock-off” of the Big Apple, which was originally scheduled to be completed in 2019. Located near the port city of Tianjin (and about 120 miles from Beijing), it will offer 164 million-square-feet of office space, spread out over an area that’s reportedly larger than the Financial District in Manhattan (the New York City version). It even comes complete with its very own Rockefeller Center and Twin Towers.
