This construction site for a 12-floor business center used to be a vast green land.For heavy machinery to acces the site, all was cleared,resulting in an illegal parking space.

Should we be grateful they left us a few flower trees(originally planted and watered by the residents living in the building facing the construction site)along the parking space?

To show how big that piece of land is, you can still see it when standing on the back balcony of the building. This might seem like a relief that there are some of it left but ...

If you look closer you'll notice here and there garbage and various objects laying there as if it was a public open landfill.

You can even find batches of abandoned tires among the greenery. It seems like no one is concerned enough to clean up their own mess. Protecting green spaces is a real challenge.
