Notice the scaffoldings on the slopes - looks like they are repairing those small landings, the only part of the building where the concrete looked slightly damaged in the pics previously published.

Although I know that the majority of architecture lovers hate this building, suprisingly I like it. It has some elements that make it unique.

Finally the glass facade. I think it will look beautiful and elegant, also because of its pyramidal shape... Nice pic !

great to see the building back on track .
If orascom and emaar are involvved at any level it means that the structure is still safe .

i m glad to see this building back on track and guys maybe it is a sign that the country is willing to open it s market and join the the global economy .

i don,t think that this is propaganda not anymore they cant afford it it was a matter of time before N.K decides to open to the global market .

The render is amazing really the whole complex is a piece of art it s unique in its own way ...

I'm excited that this thing might get completed! Looks fantastic in the render and I've always disagreed with the negativity surrounding it. It's a classic design that's hard to criticize unless you think the pyramids are atrocious.

I wonder if birds have nested in the concrete windows over the past couple years?
Anyhow, I am interested in seeing it completed.

Before the construction restarted, when I see the Ryugyong's exterior up-close, it looked very low-budget and I saw some cracks in it. And it looked like a portion of the concrete chipped away. And in the photos of the restarted construction process, look closely when I ask you what are those white tiles they're putting on the building before they put the glass in?

Whatever it that as they are putting on the face of the building is certainly going up quickly! Of course no one can get close enough to see what it is or how it's being applied. Based on the fact it's going up so fast and it appears the windows are being cut in afterwards maybe it's just a foam underlayment in preparation for the final layer?
