Welcome to your new home, workers: Chinese villagers moved into prison-like new town.

I can't tell if this is to keep the proletariat in or out.

All I could think of when I saw the pix was Woody Guthrie's song "Little Boxes". Never made it to the second verse (there's a pink one and a blue one. . . ) as there is NO variety of color there, just all the same monochrome shade of concrete gray. It would suck to be lost.

I guess if you live in China, do not get drunk.

This is luxury by Chinese standards where people are used to cramped living arrangements and no space - these are 253 square meter (~2700 square foot) three floor single family homes with decks and a tiny yard. An there is not a single mortgage on any one of these.

If it had palm trees it would look like some developments in Florida! Streets need to curve a little though.
