Demolition personnel at the sense said, this building was an illegal construction. The government once acquired some of the land from the owner and paid him the appropriate compensation. The owner then utilized the remaining 19 square meters of the land and also occupied part of the public land, constructed this “classic” building.

Because the average monthly income of each person in the household was less than 500 yuan, the government qualified them for subsidized low-rent housing. As for the future, if the income of the household ever increases, whether they can continue to use the low-rent housing or not, is still currently under negotiation.

  1. this is what China news is all about right here!

    and devin…1th? c’mon bud…1st.

  2. The government should have bought or taken possession of it and set it up as a tourist attraction.

  3. It is a one of a kind, unique shape building. Should have been preserved as a historical tourist attraction.

  4. “Some of the frames were one layer of brick”? Hainan gets pounded by hurricanes from time to time. After a category 3+, a building of one layer of bricks would look like that that last picture without needing the demolition machines.
