Because China: New McMansion Penthouses!

Because China: New McMansion Penthouses!

Via Architizer August 15, 2012

In the bustling city of Zhuzhou, Hunan province, China, there are many factories and textile mills. The recent explosive economic growth and desire for housing located near the working place has inspired some residents to build their dream homes on the top of a city building in an effort to help preserve and protect the outlying countryside. Mmmmkkkaaaayyy... At this time there are only four houses atop a five-story shopping center.

This new trend may or may not become more popular in China. But why don't they just build the houses on the ground?

Because China.

  1. Cool. I would really dig living in that situation.

  2. Obviously China's housing market has gotten a bit carried away.

  3. Great idea. But China's pollution levels are so bad, how much of the countryside can they really save?
