They actually are. The government bought up lots to increase capacity for production and gave residents bonds in value of $250k to well over $2million. Doesn't take too many people to get togther and build a $150~ million tower.

They wouldn't care, Huaxi Village is over 30km from downtown Wuxi.

I think the thread title should indicate its former name. On the other hand, Huaxi Tower is probably a better name for the building, Farmers' Apartment sounds too "countryside."

The real name for this project is Hanging Village of Huaxi or just Huaxi Tower.

WOW, I did not know this building was actually built, seems like there are only two kind off people . People who hate it and people that love it. I would have loved to see this builing in a city like Tokio though
