I thought this was going to be one of those striking posters with the big red check mark at the bottom.

Is the meaning the same as 拆 when written large on a building?

Maybe they're worried about the negative connotations of 拆.  I guess "Requisitioned" sounds better than "Awaiting Demolition".

 

But the one in the photograph looks a little 'arty'.  In my experience they'd just write in spray paint.  And then build a wall around it.
