My architects, KKE are out of Minneapolis.
The project will take between five and seven years to complete depending upon a number of variables. (I.e. absorption rate for residential and retail space in the local marketplace.
See the rendering and photographs of what the development will look like above.
Remember, we are talking about bringing a little over 10 million square feet of residential and retail space to the market. That is a significant amount of space in anyone's book.)
The project is called Tianjin World.  It is being built NW of Bejing.

    Sigma Chi offers many leadership programs for undergraduates and alumni, such as the Horizons Program, Cornerstone and Balfour Leadership training Workshop. This year the Beta Xi Chapter of Sigma Chi will be well represented.

    Tim Moussean , one of the new Chapters Undergraduates, applied for the Horizons program and was accepted. The evaluation of each applicant is blind, in other words, there is no information indicating the name or location of the individual applicant. There were over 350 applications made. Only 140 were selected.. The undergraduate must be a freshman or sophmore.Horizons is a challenging and proven leadership program specifically created for Sigma Chi underclassmen who are eager and willing to improve themselves and their world. At Horizons, undergraduates experience a six-day immersion in whole-brained learning that engages both mind and body.This is an all expense paid trip, 6 day experience, to Snowbird in Utah during the summer. Watch for Tim to be an emerging leader of the Chapter.
    Paul Garson (Chapter Advisor) and Chris Burnett (assistant Grand Praetor) have been selected to attend the Cornerstone training for Alumni and become Mentors of the program. Mentors assist undergraduates by increasing leadership training and improving academic performance and general operations. Cornerstone mentors have an unequivocal commitment to the ideals of Sigma Chi, willingness to be a role model and accessibility and availability to the chapter and its members.

    Balfour Leadership Training Workshop
    Lee Morgan (Alumni Pledge Advisor) was selected by Headquarters to join the Balfour Workshop faculty this summer in the recruitment division. Workshop is being held at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill.

    The Balfour Leadership Training Workshop, established in 1947, is a program designed to improve the quality of leadership in the Fraternity. Each August, leaders from Sigma Chi's undergraduate chapters spend four days on a college campus, deeply immersed in presentations, discussions, and problem solving sessions about chapter operations and other issues that affect a chapter's viability. The sessions are led by the Alumni Faculty.
