The mammoth real-estate venture in Hebei Province is a pastiche of its American counterpart, albeit one with a wine-tasting pavilion, a New Age spa and security guards dressed as park rangers, who salute every passing car. @chiyin_sim of @VIIPhoto photographed this new section of housing being built while on #nytassignment in #JacksonHole, China."
