    In 2008 this village was built close to the national stadium to house hundreds of athletes for the Beijing Olympics. Unfortunately due to the level of bad pollution in the city many of the athletes decided to stay outside the city instead so the project was abandoned. Nothing has been done since with the properties although there was a fair bit of activity at one end of the site. The village consists of several streets of villas which look almost finished from the outside but are completely empty inside. There is also a huge club house with four floors and a swimming pool called the Homko Club. Spent a couple of hours here with @Maniac before resorting to more ridiculously cheap beer and food, well worth a visit if you're in Beijing.

    5. Some houses were slightly more advanced in their construction but not by much.

    9. The Homko Club, we had to sneak through several of the houses to get this view as security was pacing up and down just out of shot.

    Great report, amazing how the whole village is built and then completely abandoned.
