Images surface of Disney relocation tower blocks subsiding into one another in Chuansha Town

Reports - and supporting photography - have surfaced of a residential building project in Chuansha Town, China where two recently-completed tower blocks have begun to lean towards one another to the point where they are touching.

The project in question is pair of tower blocks constructed as relocation homes for people living on the site of the Disney Theme Park (currently under construction). At 15-storeys in height, there is now concern over the subsidence of the structures.

Chen Tong, head of Xintuan Real Estate, told Shanghaiist: “Only some decorative parts on the eaves were broken and residents can live in the blocks without any worries at all.”
