Wuhan shopping center builds $10 million, 200kg gold brick road

A mall in Wuhan, Hubei, has laid a path consisting of 200 1-kilogram bricks, a veritable gold brick road. It is about 7 meters (more than 20 feet) long. It's a very inefficient way to use the gold though, laying down 1 kg bricks. A single 1 oz coin can cover a decent sized room in gold leaf.


Update: China Daily covers the story: Gold road shines in Wuhan
