Building Area Kangbashi started within the state of the project in Ordos – a city in the province of Inner Mongolia, the source of wealth which is coal mining. Built up area of office buildings, administrative centers, government agencies, museums, theaters and sports facilities, as well as residential quarters. But there is one problem. In an area with more than one million inhabitants, is still almost no one lives. Despite the fact that most of the property is already purchased and planned that by 2010, a district will be populated Kangbashi still empty.
