It'll really look good once the installation of glass claddings are finished

shame updates are coming slowly and rarely... that is probably the reason we talk about everything connected to this hotel...

Well it might get locked again...such things happen when there are no new updates for a few months or there is nothing to talk about. Has anyone ever looked way back at the supertalls forum and looked around for any updates. Well not me obviously...I am a lazybones. Well, there just might be something more interesting than coming back here to babble. When there are new pics though it will be amazing. This is an Egyptian contractor we're talking about people. They know how to get buildings done quickly! At least a facade is only what we are talking about. Orascom hasn't promised anything more. I distincly recall seeing photos of the wings which featured crumbling concrete. I would like to see them again to confirm that but can't find anything anywhere. My vote is I doubt that this building is of any use anymore.

You are probably less than 16, but watch out anyway, you too have been exposed to air for all this time.

concerning tourist visits i think Iraq, Somalia and possibly Congo have lower number than N.Korea...
but still 1500 people yearly wouldn't fill this hotel by 20-30%... i'm sure it will be empty most of the time, if it will be opened for public...

Glad to see this progressing. It towers over Pyongyang and needs to be completed for full effect.
