"Kangbashi New Area, or Hia Bagx New Area (Mongolian: ᠬᠢᠶ᠎ᠠ ᠪᠠᠭᠰᠢ kiy-a baγsi; Chinese: 康巴什新区; Pinyin: KāngbāshíXīnqū), or Habagexi Subdistrict, is a subdivision of the Chinese city of Ordos, Inner Mongolia, situated in Northern China. Kangbashi was made world famous by a news report in November 2009 from Al Jazeera,[3] later picked up and expanded through an April 2010 article in Time magazine,[4] for having few residents but massive amounts of empty residential housing and high-tech public works projects. Subsequent reports have supported the claims that Kangbashi only presently houses around 20,000 to 30,000 people.[5] High home prices are often blamed for keeping prospective buyers away from the city. But when home prices crashed there—from $1,100 a square foot in 2006 to $470 a square foot in December 2011—people started to think Kangbashi was a lost cause."
