Someone Jammed an Illegal Corridor Between Two High-Rises

New, 3 comments

Well, this seems inevitable. Over in Nanning, China, an ominous and flagrantly illegal pathway has sprouted between two residential high-rises, looking awkwardly and precariously out of place. So far there are few details on who built this and why, but it sure looks like a tenant in the taller tower was trying to grow his or her territory, just like that Beijing man who built himself an entire villa atop his apartment building. In any case, folks in the neighborhood are in distress, hence the appearance of these photos on the Internet. Some have expressed doubt that the structure would survive a typhoon or earthquake. All reasonable concerns.
