Like they'll actually ever deck out the entire interior....My bet would be on high-level 5 floors of it done (so they can house foreign diplomats and journalists, to show off how amazing their "finished" hotel is), plus the hotel entrance. The rest will be an empty shell, but who will ever know if they just don't let you onto those floors

Wow I like these edited orchestrated photos. Especially those with loads of cars and happy people on the streets.

From the above city looks nice but feels empty. Probably because of knowledge what city is it.

Knock off the political crap! Infractions and brigs being handed out!

How is it possible for this tower to have over 100 floors with only 330 meters?

More like, "Its floor-to-ceiling heights are tiny."

It was probably possible because just like everything else it was designed for North Koreans. They are usually shorter (5'5" on average). Another thing is that possibility that Kim Il-sung planned out the "perfect" heaigh for a floor, jjust like chairs, tables, etc...things attributed to him.


P.S --It's not political, it's fact. If i break any SCC rule please let me know.

Hotels in Hawaii frequently pack 45-46 floors in a 400 ft tower. The building type allows for lower ceiling heights than an office building. Whatever rationale the planners of Ryugyong had, it's not as uncommon as you might think.

That is about 3m floor to floor, or maybe 2.7m floor to ceiling, slab thickness is unlikely to be that thick.

and 2.4m in the toilet with ductwork or wet area.

2.4m is fine for a 4 stars hotel.

Thanks everyone
I guess Shanghai Tower has a very tall floor to ceiling height which turns 600 meters into a mere 120 floors.

я думаю у жителей Северной Кореи другое мнение. Уж всяко лучше тупо квадратной коробки..

I think the North Koreans have a different opinion. Really any better dull square box ..
