The Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau of Danzhou City, China, issued a court order on the first day of the new year 2022 that requires Evergrande to dismantle some of its illegal construction projects in 10 days.
Evergrande’s Ocean Flower Island, a megaproject in the third-phrase completion located in Danzhou, Hainan Province, is ordered to be demolished, according to NTDTV.
Haihua island’s residential project No. 2 has been accused of being illegally built.
On Dec. 30, 2021, the official punishment order was released. The Danzhou City Administration confirmed the order to the media on Jan. 1.
The administration issued the order based on two reasons: a related planning permit was issued illegally and has since been canceled, and the project breaches the Urban and Rural Planning Law.
Since 2019, the city’s administration has been looking into construction projects on Haihua Island. They consider that 39 residential buildings in Evergrande’s Haihua Island residential project exhibit anomalies, and they successively recalled them in May 2020.
At the end of December 2021, Chinese media held a poll titled top 10 “Ugliest Buildings” in China. Evergrande’s buildings on Haihua Island topped the list of unsightly structures at the time, with critics accusing them of “damaging marine ecosystems” and having “strange and untidy designs.”
Hui Ka Yan, or Xu Jiayin, chairman of Evergrande Group, presented a New Year’s speech to all the employees on Jan. 1, in which he said the resumption rate of Evergrande’s projects around the country reached 91.7%, with more than 53,000 units of house handed over in the fourth quarter.
In a country where the communist regime controls everything, it is hard to believe that all these events do not hold a political background or objective, still unknown to Western media.
