The owner of an illegally-built 12-story building in Phu Quoc, an island city off Kien Giang Province in southern Vietnam, has completed its demolition after three months, Huynh Quang Hung, chairman of the local administration, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Monday.

The land on which the building was developed belongs to a man named V.M.H., residing in Hanoi.

Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, six floors of the building were erected, with the remaining six stories being constructed afterward.

In August 2022, the Phu Quoc People’s Committee imposed an administrative fine of VND61.5 million (US$2,441) on the developer, including VND55 million ($2,183) for the illegal construction and VND6.5 million ($258) for the unlawful conversion of agricultural land use into non-agricultural use.

On May 16 last year, Phu Quoc City chairman Huynh Quang Hung issued an order for the dismantling of the building, covering an area of 2,746 square meters, and instructed the restoration of the original status of the 473-square-meter plot of land.

The building developer pull down the construction on January 29 this year.

The city will complete related procedures to dismantle other illegally-built projects in a bid to  tighten construction order and land management on the island.

They include over-water bungalows off Ham Ninh Commune and villas in Duong To Commune, Hung said.
