It's not the most number of buildings taken down in one, but second. America's CDI group claim the record for the most taking out 17 buildings at once at Villa Panamericana & Las Orquideas in San Juan, Puerto Rico.Grantus said:yeah i seen that on the news yesturday.

Off-topic, but don't you drive on the left in Hong Kong? What happens when you cross the border into China by car?AG said:The demolition occurred in Shenzhen right next to the river which seperates Shenzhen from Hong Kong.
Good question. They are new. The reason they were demolished was because they were built illegally, without government approval.ParraMan said:Sorry if it's a stupid question, but why were they demolished? That reddish building in the 3rd last pic looks pretty new, as does that one that looks like it's still under construction?!? Really cool, that aerial shot really looks not real
