CNN's John Vause has a look at the newly unveiled Olympic village that will house 16,000 athletes in Beijing


Well, this will be home for 16, 000 athletes and coaches at this year's Beijing Games. Forty-two buildings, it's a sprawling1 complex in fact, it's the largest Olympics village in Games' history, and designers say this is a showcase of environmental standards, for example, the outdoor lighting2 here is powered by solar panels and inside these buildings, the heating and cooling systems used reclaimed3 sewage water from a local treatment plant.  

Now, also inside, these apartments, a privilege denied to the vast majority of Beijing residents drinking water straight from the tap. There's also Internet access, but authorities say that will be subject to the normal heavy government censorship. Athletes will sleep two to a room, and eight to an apartment, and officials deny that there will be a ban on bibles and other religious symbols. In fact, they say they've built what they call a religious service center, and once the Olympics are over and the Para-Olympics are over, all of these apartments will be renovated4 and then sold off.  

John Vause, CNN, Beijing.
