The five-storey building has shops on the ground floor and a car park facility on the other floors
Photos of an unusual road have gone viral
on Chinese social media. Why? Because the road is on the rooftop of a 5-storey building.
In an interesting take on urban planning, a building in the bustling Chinese city of Chongqing has a two-lane public road on its terrace, complete with trees lining the street and shops. The road runs around the entire complex which is situated in a hilly neighbourhood and built below ground level. The ground floor of the building houses several shops and the rest of the floors have a car parking.

that passes through a residential building.Click for more trending news
