It seems as if the Hotel was building itself...

Pyongyang

compared with TOKYO

Pyongyang looks dead. There are no cars in the streets or bridges. Scary place to be...

Wow, I liked this project, it was interesting just concrete "godzila" standing there alone, like ghost. But now, I'm surprised, they're going to build finish it! I don't know, what about the concrete, but that would be maybe just the top thin layer bad.. they have to hope. I'm waiting for more pictures, hopefully soon I'll see some.

Gretings from Slovakia!

It is clear from these photos that all the speculation about deteriorating concrete is irrelevant. It's plain as day that whoever is working on this building has resurfaced or replaced the balconies that go along the edges of the building. You can see new concrete on the balconies in the first picture and safety netting on several balconies in the last picture.

Yes, the main surface where most of the cladding goes looks good. Rain didn't make much damage (pointed green). Although the other sides (red) looks relly bad and like sundrop74 said they're renovating them so it looks that everything will be fine.

I would love to experience staying in NK if the country ever does open up more to tourism - even though I'm a redneck californian

It would offer an experience unlike any other that you can find on this planet.

I was skeptical for a while about this tower for some very obvious reasons, but I for one can say with certainty that I'm pretty happy as well as shocked to see them resume their efforts on this tower. They even replaced most of the crappy concrete on the balconies on the sides of the structure.

I really wonder what the interior will look like when completed - And I also wonder what solution they are going to use for vertical transportation... maybe one day we will all be able to find out!

I too would think it would be interesting to see this tower in person, and NK for that matter. Just because I think the structure is unstable and a waste of money doesn't mean I don't think it'd be an interesting tourist destination. Besides, it'd be interesting to see how they react to us Redneck Californians.

Well that explains the total blackout except for that one little spot. Most likely Kim Jong Il's palace...

Nice view you've got there. Are you allowed to go to the other side of the river? Or only guided tours probably?
