HONG KONG -- Two new 57-story apartment buildings under construction atop a train station are to be demolished in Hong Kong after real estate company New World Development found serious construction defects.

New World, one of the city's biggest developers, said the two towers would be rebuilt but a spokesperson said five other towers where construction started earlier have passed construction quality and structural safety requirements.
