Planting resembling a small forest on top of a 17-story building in Haitang Ge, a neighborhood in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, is suspected of covering an illegal construction project.
A construction director with an unnamed real estate enterprise said the safety nets were very likely used for adding construction on the roof.
According to its appearance, the construction project might be two stories high, the director added. "It would put the safety of the apartment at risk."
The director also said that even if the construction is built for maintenance, it should have been approved by the building's other house owners and the management department.
The construction is being carried out by a resident on the 18th floor, and what it's for is still unknown, according to a security guard.
