Hurrah!!! A great building!
Yeah it's just some cladding for now, but really it's symbolic, just in these times of crisis... really goes to show how crisis is only a result of western speculation... China for one will very possibly gain from this situation.

And the only thing i found was that they want "to make the building functional". In my eyes it not stands for completing the whole structure.

Also with the 100th anniverery of the north corean state founder they dont need so much hotel space...(who of the north coreans have the money to stay a night there?).

I think they complete only the base for a smaller hotel and make the top resistant against bad weather.

Glass looks nice! I must say, the commo housing blocks reflecting off it will certainly add some jazz to the city haha



I would love this to be completed, not another 20 year stalling!
Didnt this always get photoshopped out of pictures?

This building is a waste of money. I cannot understand what are those commie leaders thinking? Instead of resurrecting this beast, they could use the money for more appropriate purposes such as improving the ppl's living condition at a time of crisis like this. No really, how many tourists come to Pyongyang each year?? How many percent is the hotel usage there?

I love it, it looks very futuristic.

This is a good sign that maybe North Korea is moving away from communism.

Or maybe that the rest of the world is moving away from capitalism (see the return of Keynes and the "bailouts") and state-driven economies start to improve
