Sanya, a southernmost city that sees lots of tourists, is planning to halt construction of apartments measuring less than 80 square meters in a move that will likely make it even harder to find affordable housing in the already expensive city. The coastal city in Hainan provine has been enjoying a boom in tourist numbers in recent years and that has boosted demand for villas and mansions, CCTV News reports.

 

While confirming the report, urban planning authorities said the plan was only under consideration. Small apartments have been in high demand among buyers outside the province, causing overpopulation and scramble for infrastructure in the city, said authorities in response to complaints from local residents that they will not be able to afford housing.
