I love this building, the way it blends with the mountains in the back, its unique form, and so on.

It looks great now that it's been clad, but unfortunately it has lost a lot of its onimous mystique :P

That picture is so wonderfully composed that I think it has to be propaganda.

Still, it's not a 'recent' photo as it shows leaves on the trees in Pyongyang.
Yes, sorry about the Size(i dont know how to shrink it). BTW This Picture was taken in mid-November of 2010.

We love skyscrapers, that's why we keep coming back here, so the politics should stay out. Lets look at this as a unique skyscraper in an isolated country which makes this all the more interesting. Dubai & its many new buildings that will never be totally populated is too much of a good thing. So I hope if anyone here can post new pictures or write stories about how this Egyptian company is dealing with this project, please, post your stories & pictures. Thank you.

Looks like they want to make it taller than something else? So they are adding a few meters?

Either that or three UFO's landed on the roof. FIRST CONTACT, Pyongyang!

I think that's just the crane, seen from an unusual angle.

One of these days when North Korea isn't ruled by a crazy hobbit I will try to visit this hotel. It is a very impressive structure, and the fact that there aren't really that many other tall buildings around means the view would be spectacular.

This thing looks massive. Not that bad too. Wish this wasn't North Korea.
