Very unlikely.

Doing that would be to admit the failure of the country's route since its foundation in 1948. It would also imply a toning down of the personality cult and would imply a bigger exposition of the population to the elite's flamboyant lifestyle.

In other words, the north korean elite would never engage in such an effort because it would make way for its very end.

Another recent picture taken from Flickr.

To bad we can't the other 2 sides of the building on the recent pictures.

Because on these nice fireworks pictures taken in May 2009 it clearly shows the progress on 1 side but even more the lack of progress on the other side.

cladding



no cladding


http://www.nkeconwatch.com/2009/05/1...hotel-growing/

so what's the progress on the back sides right now?

Is there any information on what it looks like inside. The outside is beautiful, but I wouldnt want to step inside. That cement from what I know is pretty cheap. There was a lotta thought about how long the structure would be able to stand. I must say, they are making it look beatiful even though its taking up half of the entire country's budget.. hehe

There are copies of Dubai buildings in for example China (of the National Bank of Dubai building for example). So I guess it would be 1-1 Dubai - East Asia .

I know this isn't completely on topic, but bear with me....

Know why they are hurrying all of a sudden? NK just announced they will be lifting border restrictions and tourism to two areas will begin again soon. Also it was said that the families that were divided will be allowed to visit. I think this is why the hotel has been clad....at least on one side.

Judging from the newly posted pics, I'm almost 100% sure that there is nothing going on inside. Only the cladding will be finished, and the restaurant on the top.

And why is that?

First this building was was supposed to 'almost collapse' and never to be finished. Then they started reconstruction against all odds. Now it was supposed to 'only cladding'. Now these pictures are showing that it didn't stay by just cladding, but they are in fact working on the revolving restaurants. And now it is supposed to be 'only the restaurant and cladding'?? Yeah right.

They are going to finish this building. As you can see the picture with the fireworks, this hotel plays a huge part in their propaganda. Do you really think they will fake an opening in 2012 and then there would be no hotel activity in the face of whole Pyongyang?
