I think updating this building is like a quest, you must look for the last guy that travelled to NK and see if he took pictures of this hotel. It's a really beautiful building, though.

I find it hilarious that the building consumed 2% of the country's entire GDP.

And those weren't even taken in the tower itself. Just the podium which is usually one of the last things to be finished anyways...

Before Kempinski left halfway through their job it was going to be partially completed in 2014 or so, but now nobody knows.

It kind of looks like a space ship. Maybe there aren't any pictures of the inside, because it's full of engines and tanks. Maybe the communist elite is planning on leaving this planet to start a new North Korea on Mars (the RED Planet).

It is not exactly airtight and it seems like it needs a lot of work to be able to even take off. Well the long construction delays and practically no lights on at night might be a sign its actually a spaceship. Haha.

Anyone notice at the very summit of the building there appears to be a sort of old Pepsi logo looking ball? I wonder if it's functional or decorative.
