Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't find the link any more.
But it may well make sense in some special cases. What should a company do, if they do not believe they can sell the house in the next years. Not selling it costs the company money, e.g. property taxes, for selling it in some years they have to pay the upkeep and secure it.
In a region with high unemployment, where everybody wants to leave it isn't too absurd.
In other areas even new build houses are taken down, for preventing the whole quarter to become shabby.

This is not meant representative, but only anecdotal.
