Private Direction building of Antalya is abandoned for almost 10 years due to damaged column, but no destruction plans ever concluded;

Own photo taken in December '05

By 43m height, it was one of highest 10 buildings in Turkey when completed in 1983.

The university building needs to be restored, it's a cool brutalist design. The concrete looks like rust!!!

Oh and that Financial Center Confinanzas story just blew my mind.

Does ANYONE know the name of this tower? It's apparently abandoned, in Shenzhen, China.

This 'Hilton' has been on hold for so long and ruins an awesome view of Constanta.

is it possible to demolish an abandoned building? Like would you have to contact the gov of the country / city to demolish the building? would you have to buy it first? or buy the land? etc.

anyone know? thanks.

2 of the most notoriously abandoned projects in downtown Kuala Lumpur

Duta Grand Hyatt, abandoned since 1998




Plaza Rakyat, abandoned since 1998





Both are victims of the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis.

was on its way to become Saigon's second tallest building and Vietnam's 4th tallest, then the construction was halted. Blam. Now it's kinda abandoned. Nothing's been going on for a year now.

Yes, but I think they might revive it in the future. Such a nice location; against the backdrop of the Saigon River.

I could probably put this one here
永凯现代城 (Wing Kai New Town) in Nanning. It's been over 3 years now the tower hasn't been finished internally.. I think it ment to be five star hotel.

Whitney Block is impressive. I hope they will find a user for it.

Ciudad Universitaria is a beautiful example of urban decay.
