This thing is ludicrous. It looks like the "Skyscraper of the Future", as designed by a 9 year-old.

It is a forward-looking tower, so it is meant to look futuristic. For the 80s, it was/is a very progressive design.

NK may take another few decades to finish up this missile.

It all depends on when there will be a new tenant. Other construction projects are taking place in the city, so they should have the money to complete the inside, but they choose not to. They just find no reason to continue the hotel until someone decides to invest further in it. As far as we know, Orascom is still fitting out some of their space, since they haven't said otherwise.
At least they have installed the exterior fully to protect the interiors from the elements.

^ How is that old... Looks to be months old.

What I believe is China is doing a good job paying for the beautification of Pyongyang. I love this city!

I just made it today.

And I wouldn't be surprised if China has invested more into the NK economy with the new leader, beautification included. It would explain the new power plants and dams and such, as well.

Never-before-posted photo of the base... Looks like there is a section that is curved. I wonder what those pipe things are?

and from the interior, showing the magificent steel lattice of a skylight...

and from the top, overlooking the construction of a museum.

According to the site, they travelled to the viewing area via (internal?) construction elevator, which answers the question as to whether they got to the roof by stairs or not.

I emailed Koryo Group asking if they had any more photos of the Ryugyong, and the interior that they haven't posted yet, like these ones.



Is there any Korean here that can translate this info?
