Again a "nail house" in China, the last building in the area. This one is in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. According to local media, the owner of the house didn't reach an agreement with the local authority about compensation of the demolition. A common thing in China, therefor a lot more of this so called nail houses in this gallery.
A six-floor villa is viewed on the construction site in the central business district of Shenzhen April 17, 2007. Choi Chu Cheung, the owner of the villa, and his wife Zhang Lian-hao, refused to accept the compensation offered by the developer who plans to build a financial centre on the site. The couple are demanding that the developer compensate them with property similar in size or raise the offer from 6,500 yuan ($840) to 18,000 yuan ($2,327) per square metre.
