TAIPEI (The China Post) — Taipei Building Administration Office (BAO, 臺北市建築管理工程處) has asked Show Lo (羅志祥) Tuesday to remove his illegal rooftop swimming pool within 30 days following an on-site investigation. 

Neighbors are reportedly unhappy at the 41-year-old singer-host who allegedly started building a rooftop swimming pool at his luxury condo in Neihu, Taipei.  

In response to media inquires, the BAO reportedly conducted an investigation regarding an application for an “interior design permit” filled a few days ago. 

According to Chinese-language media, Lo intended to build a rooftop swimming pool without informing the property management company in charge of the building first.

The company called off the construction work in response to neighbors’ complaints.

The community regulatory board, the property management company, and the asset management company commissioned by Lo met last week and decided to suspend the construction.  

In response to the controversy, Luo’s agent told NOWnews that “it’s just general rooftop terrace landscaping, and it’s all in compliance with the community rules.”

In 2018, Show Lo spent NT$270 million(US$9.48 million) to buy a two-story luxury condo covering more than 330.58 square meters in Neihu, nearby the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT辦事處).
