The Chinese Eiffel Tower

The new Eiffel Tower in China, 108 meters tall, is being built in the middle of a re-created 7th arrondissement, complete with Parisian-style immeubles haussmaniens. Chinese real estate development firm Guangsha, which has created this new community in the outskirts of Hangzhou (about 200 kilometers from Shanghai), already has a Champs Elysées in place, too. Next addition: vineyards.

at least with Chinese quality control it won't be there as long as the real Eiffel Tower.
