I saw this on another post & immediately thought how could this happen? The contractor, inspectors, survey crew all this was good until the walls went all the way up. I'm sure there'll be a lawsuit filled somewhere, sometime...

Backwards buildings are common in places where the powers that be don’t care about the public realm. Pad sites where the front of a building faces inward towards a larger parking lot, rather than the street, aren’t that uncommon. Formula architecture buildings that are sideways are more common.

Las Crices, New Mexico has a Walmart where the loading docks and service areas face the street, and the entrance and facade face the rear.
