Still rising. That's good news.
Let's hope they speed up again soon.

yeah, the delay could have been longer if a lack of funds was preventing progress

still, i am very positive that no matter what delay, the tower would have been ultimately finished some day, like the Ryugyŏng-Hotel which, after intial construction from 1987-1992 was on hold till 2008
of course there is reason for doubt, that the interior isnt finished nor is there a demand big enough to use the full space

also, besides the heavy reliance on structural concrete and the Y footprint (which is a lot bigger in Ryugyong), there isnt much in common...
