Why should the world be interested in anything happening in Pyongyang? Why have this thread. Few, if any, will ever go there!


It all looks so terribly ugly.

That's exactly a good reason to the existence of this thread.

Mirae Scientists Street Residential Tower
Height 210m
floors 53


Over 18 months since 'opening', landmark skyscraper in Mirae Scientists Street seems totally unoccupied
“The simplest explanation is that construction was hurried to meet a politically sensitive deadline, so the outside was “completed” but the inside was not,” said Melvin. “Perhaps over time, more families will move into the building, but who knows.”

Nothing even barely attractive about any of the above. The dross looks so gross. I guess typical of a utilitarian state with little architectural standards and few, if any, personnel with creativity.

A city in a country that could bring the destruction to mankind to maintain a dinasty created by terror. The opposite of comunism, welfare for the few and appresion for the many.

Construction ongoing near Ryomyong Street, images show

Despite much-lauded completion of the project, building activity near Kim Il Sung University continues

Large-scale construction activities continue behind one of North Korea’s marquee building projects – Ryomyong Street – exclusive NK Pro images of Pyongyang in September reveal.

The construction activity is located on the western end of the street, adjacent to Kim Il Sung University Building 3, which was also a major part of the completed project.

Ryomyong Street was a high priority for North Korea’s leadership, and it featured heavily in state media in the run-up to its public unveiling in April.

The street, which features over 50 new buildings, was completed in just over a year.



In another indication of its importance to the regime, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was present at the opening ceremony of the street – as was a foreign press delegation of which NK Pro was a part.

Speeches by North Korean officials at its unveiling extolled the speed at which the street was built.

Prime Minister Pak Pong Ju told crowds that the project demonstrated that sanctions were not having their desired effect and that the DPRK was growing stronger.

But despite state media reports praising the area’s rapid development, images from Pyongyang in September show that construction activities immediately behind the Kim Il Sung (KIS) University Building 3 are continuing.



Over two dozen buildings appear to be in various stages of construction, with the laying of initial foundations for other large buildings also taking place. Images also reveal large numbers of laborers and heavy machinery active on the site.

Multiple propaganda slogans and placards are also present, a typical feature of ongoing construction sites in North Korea.

The Kim Il Sung University building was absorbed into the wider coverage of the Ryomyong Street project and, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), much of the construction along the street is meant to provide housing for “scientists and researchers including educators of Kim Il Sung University.”



However, construction on the building itself had begun in 2006, according to satellite imagery, and had stalled for multiple years prior to the uptick in efforts affiliated with Ryomyong Street’s development.

Satellite imagery also provides evidence of what appears to be a change in plans for the location photographed.

The area has been a hotbed of activity since late 2015 and early 2016, with dozens of tightly packed structures added within that period.

Many, however, were demolished between October 2016 and April 2017, possibly as they were intended to house construction workers working on the larger scale projects.



Two large green buildings were also constructed at the site between May and September 2016, but were subsequently stripped and demolished in January and February this year.

In their place are the frames of six new buildings.

Older buildings present in the area for years have also been demolished and are in the process of being replaced.

While state media often highlights ongoing construction projects in the country, KCNA has not yet reported on the developments at the site.

@ GravesVpelli

What is your problem ?
People interested in what happened in Pyöngyang.
People have the right to open a thread.
Just accept it.
See that Trump does not make nonsense and starts a war.

The projects in Pyöngyang I find interesting. But I would want more freedom for the people of North Korea.

But there is no justification for war. Each country has its own problems. There are few countries that are really good.

Think of liberalism and take distance from collectivism.
Read Ludwig von Mises.
