HA NOI (VNS) — The municipal People's Committee of Ha Noi sent an urgent document on Tuesday asking the chairman of Ba Dinh District People's Committee to enforce an administrative punishment for 8B Le Truc building's violation.
The decision followed an investigation at the end of last year on the demolition of the building's illegally constructed floors.
The investigation was conducted by the municipal Construction Department, Ba Dinh District's construction inspectors and the People's Committee of Dien Bien Ward.
In October this year, the 69m-tall building complex located at Ba Dinh District's 8B Le Truc Street was asked to demolish illegally built floors. These floors made the building's height and gross areas 16m and 6,000sq.m more, respectively, than the licence issued to the project allowed.
According to the investigation, the building's developer, Le Truc Garment Joint Stocks Company, dismantled on average 10 to 15sq.m per day. The total demolished area of the top floor covered about 120sq.m.
The demolition work remains slow however, according to the municipal Construction Department.
Ba Dinh District's local authorities reportedly have not worked with the building's developer to accelerate the demolition, the investigation shows.
After the investigation, the People's Committee of Ba Dinh District has been ordered to plan to apply coercive measures in the first phase on the demolition of the top floor and 19th floor.
The Ha Noi People's Committee asked the district to report the plan's results before January 10 this year.
Following the investigation, the Ha Noi Inspectorate Agency concluded that the city's State management agencies have loosened their control and have yet to attempt to prevent high rise violations. — VNS
