This is one of those ‘you have to see it to believe it‘ items. China’s largest empty building. From FauxNews:
A giant shopping mall in China designed as a replica of the Pentagon has been left virtually abandoned because the space is too expensive and too confusing.
The $200 million Shanghai Pentagonal Mart, built in 2009, is bigger than the Virginia headquarters of the U.S. Defense Department, sprawling across over 70 acres.
It has a Pentagon-like shape, but does not really look that much like The Pentagon. Why is it empty after seven years?
At the time it was opened, the space was heralded for being a shopping meca with the potential to attract hundreds of thousands of shoppers a day. Owners Shanghai Megamall said they had signed thousands of tenants, including a number of Western brands… But most are gone and shopkeepers say its interior is like a labyrinth…
Build it, and they may not come.
