Chinese University Professor Builds Mountain Villa on Top of Apartment
A university professor in Beijing, Zhang Lin, has built a mountain villa on the roof of a 26-story apartment block that has gained the title of “Beijing’s most outrageous illegal structure”. Apparently built without permission, the villa that looks like something built into a seaside cliff, was created using fake rocks but real trees and grass.
Locals say the unusual high-rise structure been slowly taking shape for the past six years, but is only now receiving attention after images of the complex was published on Chinese media. The local urban management officials have now told the owner the structure is illegal and issued him with an ultimatum to prove it was built with proper government permission or dismantle it within 15 days.
