20120522_1337_063 Apartment advertisement in Shaanxi. Read this in a bus when travelling from Hanzhong to Xi'an. I remember seeing an advertisement under the bell-tower which invited people to 'join the upper-class' through the purchase of (I suppose) exclusive apartments. Forced evictions to make away for apartment development is a common grievance in China, so perhaps the advertisers could have chosen their English words with a little more sympathy towards their socialist brethren from previous eras.
