A good video about life in Pyongyang. The average apartment is 150 square meters... which is quite a size. So likely much of this new building will be dedicated to apartments as US maintains so called "sanctions" against the DPRK and there won't be a lot of tourists until they are lifted.

Also there is very much vituperation and anti-DPRK propoganda on this thread. I will not get greatly off subject, but suffice it to say there are many starving people in the so called "united states"... even main politicians in the democratic party admit this to be a fact, so stop the provocations against the DPRK.

EDIT: Is it possible to embed videos here? I would like to embed the video about life in Pyongyang for viewing here.
Thanks for the link, I got many laughs from the other related videos on that site> but if you really are a friend of the DPRK, then you can FOCUS ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF THIS TOWER (Which is being completed by an Egyptian company) and explain to us the Juche philosophy behind letting a foreign company do your construction. Juche does mean independent and self-reliant, doesn't it! So this means the construction should have been started and completed without outside help. Interesting.

I thought the bottom sections had been there all along, just had no roofs (or collapsed roofs) and Orascom finished them up.

No is not, is very easy actually .... but of course your prime reason to have registered in this forum has to be skyscrapers and not some others.

That illustration was produced by Orascom. We don't know whether it's the same as the original design from the 1980s.
