I'd settle for a nighttime picture with some of the windows lighted. At least this would show something is happening inside the hotel.

If someone can get RIGHT UP to the entrance, there should be some inside pictures too!

There is a picture several pages back where you can slightly see inside the lobby, but unfortunately, it's clear it is far from finished. I'd wait until mid to late 2013 for the entire building to be finished.

Appears to show fireworks coming off the building.

OMG, tack-O-rama! I now wonder if the Ryugyong hotel will have some kinda warped LED lighting scheme! And I thought the Abraj-al-bait light show was Las Vegas style over-the-top!

That is spectacular. The Ryugyong Hotel is already my favourite project anywhere in the world, and if they have maybe some cool, modern LED bordering like the Shanghai Financial Center, (not as flashy as those res. towers) I'll be so happy.

Pyongyang actually looks quite nice with the Ryugyong and the Mansudae buildings.

Looks like they're currently building a dome on the Ryugyong base/lobby.

I don't know much about this building, but I heard it's been vacant forever, and what's the point on building a hotel in such a non popular area?

Tourism, it shows power, that NK can build this and most other countries can't like Lithuania or Estonia. And it is not finished yet, but when it is it will be multi-purpose building and not just a hotel. There may be other reasons I didn't list though.

For all we know, Orascom or China could be paying for the cladding.

It would look different with the real lighting. And you sure it would have neon lighting, it would look really good if it did.
