windmills Thames Town, Shanghai, China

A new £200m city for 8000 residents being built at SongJiang near Shanghai is aiming to recreate the most picturesque elements of a British town to lure homebuyers from China's newly affluent middle class. Thames Town plans include Tudor half-timbered buildings, Victorian red-brick, a castle, and at least one windmill.

Another report from LGIB contains the same "at least one windmill" phrase, so I suspect that it's produced from the same press release, but I've been unable to track down the original source.
