April 11, 2018
THE structure of a shopping complex along the Suzhou Creek dubbed the city’s Hanging Gardens of Babylon has been completed.
The initial phase of the “1,000 Trees” project will open to public in late 2019 and include restaurants, museums, art galleries and entertainment sites, developer Tian An China Investments Co Ltd said.
Residents and tourists have been intrigued by the structure’s unconventional appearance, with trees planted on its pillars and balconies. There will be up to 1,000 balconies filled with plants and trees, giving the structure a hill-like appearance.
