there is nothing wrong with the name, once it is complete, and by complete I mean actual images of internal, ready to be booked, proven to be safe, people will forget the past.

I love how reflective the Ryugyong is! It can turn from blue, to black, to silver, to even gold-ish, like that last photo!

No one has ever show any interior pictures, so as far as I see, the interior is not ready, and not sure if it will ever be ready as a hotel.

When it is completed, there will be interior pics. N. Korea recently completed some new highrises and showed interior pics at the end.

Apparently some sources say it will be a mixed-use building, including apartments, hotel and offices.

I will wait and see? The whole fascade is finish, so all construction materials will need to be deliver from the entrance via its passenger lift?

Did anyone see any delivery recently, or what is the base looks like now.

There was a close up photo of the tower in April, where you can see a little bit inside the main lobby, but there were still no interior fittings in the base. There is a glass entrance, however.


From a post about a year ago, showing a model. I think there is still one final ornament to be installed, that pole with the hoop on top. I personally like it as it is, though

Amazing building. Wouldn't be surprised if there was a restaurant on top that spins.

This building (along with WTC) got me interested in skyscrapers.

Wasn't that the plan 20 years ago?
