On Monday officials from Beijing’s Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau gave Beijing resident Zhang Biqing 15 days to demolish the mountainous two-story villa he built on the rooftop of an entire apartment block. Local media sources have reported that Zang, a doctor of Chinese medicine and owner of a large chain of acupuncture clinics, spent six years and $130,000 constructing the villa as an extension of his penthouse flat. The bizarre structure is made of real grass and tress as well as fake rocks, and it covers the entire 1000-square-meter roof of a 26-story apartment building located in Beijing’s Haidian district. According to a report from the Bejing Morning Post building residents have complained about damage to their pipes and walls due to the rooftop construction, and at least two owners have moved out of the building after disputes with Zang.
