Authorities in Da Nang are set to dismantle 104 apartments built against regulations in a real estate project developed by the notorious Muong Thanh Group.

The People’s Committee in Ngu Hanh Son District are taking steps to remove the illegal parts within the Muong Thanh hotel and apartment complex.

The project is developed by the namesake corporation, which has become infamous for a series of offenses in the implementation of its real estate projects throughout the country.

The high-rise developer unilaterally adjusted the original design of the complex to add a total of 104 apartments, all of which have been sold.

According to the original design, the structure includes 42 floors and a two-story basement, with apartments allowed to be constructed from the sixth floor up.

It also showed that the second to fifth floors of the building would be reserved for common facilities like parking, kindergartens, swimming pools and gyms.

However, Muong Thanh has constructed 104 flats on these floors.

The municipal People’s Committee previously ordered the administration in Ngu Hanh Son to set up a plan to pull down the illicit parts of the construction.

The implementation of the plan was required to be reported back to the Da Nang People’s Committee prior to June 17.

According to an official in Ngu Hanh Son, the developer of the complex was previously allowed to voluntarily strip down the 104 apartments.

As they have failed to do so, the district-level administration will dismantle them.

Residents who currently live inside the illegitimate apartments have been invited to a meeting on June 16, where they will be informed of a relocation plan during the dismantling of the flats.

The provincial Department of Justice will be in charge of providing legal consultation for the affected residents.
