Unbelievable (and illegal) Beijing Renovation
You think you’ve got neighbour problems? Check out what the owner of a penthouse unit in Beijing got away with constructing over the course of six years! Despite constant complaints from other residents about the noise, water leaks, and concerns over serious structural damage to the building itself, authorities did not step in while a man constructed his own “villa” atop the 26-storey high-rise. Legal action has finally been taken, with warnings issued that the structure will be dismantled in 15 days.
Remember – always have your building permits in place if you’re going to renovate!
