Isn't 70% of Shanghai on the verge of colapse....

Are those piles hollow?

Here I thought it was a coincedence the distance between the buildings just happened to be just a little more than their heights..

It was due to the construction of an underground carpark that caused the nearby riverbank to collapse ---> the soil loosens ---> the apartment tipped over
Had the piles been deep enough, that wouldn't have happened.

WTF!

The piling contractor will be in a world of shit - but not as much as the head contractors.
Nah, the head contractor will shift the blame to the piling contractor. Might be more of a design issue though.
