Due to the new civic plan for Hangzhou downtown, the campus was sold to the Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts (Robert Kuok, 郭鶴年/郭鹤年) at a price of 2.46 billion Chinese Yuan.

The main teaching building of the university was the highest skyscraper around the West Lake, and was one of the tallest in Hangzhou City. The teaching buildings were torn down by explosions. The land of the campus is planned to build a luxurious hotel and currently under dense constructions.
