Where the rooftops are HOME  in Zhuzhou, Hunan province

Four unfurnished villas that sit on top of a shopping mall in Zhuzhou, Hunan province, have led to questions about their safety, but city planners said on Wednesday the structures were built legally and with the required documentation.

The buildings, which have electricity and water pipes already installed, will be offices for the shopping mall developer's 160 real estate management employees, said Li Li from the Zhuzhou city planning bureau.

The bureau conducted an on-site investigation after media reports voiced concern over alleged safety Whazards and the legal status of the four buildings.

The developer, Zhuzhou Jiutian Real Estate, used modern designs and landscape decorations to make the buildings look like villas, but never intended to sell them, Li said.

The construction of the shopping mall — including the rooftop buildings in the mall’s four corners — obtained authorities' approval, he said
