Chinese Home Builders Erect Suburban Houses on Mall Roof

New, 4 comments

Even in a country of more than 1.3B people, who knew it would come to this! Running out of space on ground level—but apparently with a nod to suburban-style housing—Chinese home builders have constructed a little neighborhood atop a shopping mall in the heart of Zhuzhou. Four McMansions now sit side-by-side with the building's HVAC system in a weird juxtaposition of suburban living and urban density. Of course, if the goal was efficiency, we would hope that more than four units could have been constructed atop the sprawling roof.
