General info: 

There is not much information available about this abandoned community. For a fact it can be said that it is/was somewhere close to Keelung, Taiwan. The rest of the information there is, is scattered and not 100% waterproof.

According to the assumingly most reliable sources these buildings were made in the 80´s during the Japanese real estate bubble when there was also a building boom in Taiwan and many communities were started and never finished when the bubble collapsed. This was one of them and as the money ran out, the construction halted and slowly the bushes, plants and trees took over the concrete creating and eerie ghost town. Apparently this is not the only abandoned building block in Taiwan, there are more. Some of them are bulldozed down already.

This place does not have an specific name and the location on the map is also not specific. Some say the place was demolished in 2012 but some say it still exists somewhere near Keelung…
