It has been sitting like this for a quite a few years now. It is obviously abandoned, but i am not certain as to the reason why. It is most likely the company went bankrupt during the 2008 global crisis, but if so, then i would not see any reason of salvaging this almost-finished building during liquidation.

I really think the government really should do something about it, it is such an eyesore.

I really think the government really should do something about it, it is such an eyesore.
The Golden Landmark ( Merry Land Tower ) ... it's still on hold! And I think it was deliberately put there to be an eyeshore - a form of property speculation. If you want to get rid of it ... pay for it.


According to finance.sina.com.cn (December 28, 2012) ...

" Reporters access to historical information found, although the building set aside of time-honoured, the public disclosure of information in relation to the building and developer-related information with minimal. Only known developer to Indonesian Chinese Wang Hengxin (HENRY ONGGO).

Public information display, golden land building date of the transfer of land use right for June 1999. Divided into 7 periods of construction, 1th bid unit is mineral construction Corporation of Fujian province, Luo Zhanyu, project manager. List price for 15.075 million yuan in the project, planned start time for application is January 30, 2004. "

The abandoned postmodernist building is a beauty to me... I could always watch at that gorgeous grid patern in the cladding.

Great to finally see some remarkable progress on top, it's been a while since I last checked this thread out.
