HCMC – Ma Pi Leng Panorama, a seven-story restaurant illegally built on the Ma Pi Leng Pass in Ha Giang Province, has been asked to suspend operations as the renovation of the restaurant was not carried out on par with an architecture plan approved by the local authorities, said the provincial Department of Construction.
The department has reported its inspection results related to the restaurant’s renovation to the provincial government, Le Thanh Son, deputy director of the department, said on January 18, reported VnExpress.
The provincial government agreed with the department’s request that the restaurant has to suspend operations until its renovation sticks to the approved architecture plan. Also, the restaurant’s investor was instructed to demolish parts of four floors that stick out toward the Nho Que River, Son said.
Late last month, the department set up a team to inspect the renovation of the restaurant, which discovered that the building’s roof was nearly two meters higher than that set out in the plan.
Further, the investor tiled the roof of the restaurant incorrectly and did not demolish the sections of the four floors as required.
The building was built in 2018 and was put into service in early 2019 as a rest stop, a restaurant and a lodging facility overlooking the Nho Que River in Meo Vac District. According to local authorities, the building did not have a construction permit or investment certificate at that time. Besides, it was built on a plot of agricultural land that has yet to be converted for commercial service.
