Now that's what I call epic. Hopefully it will not collapse and do not become epic fail but major victory.

Wow, they did a great work it restoring it (at least from the outside). Looks massive. I kinda like this building.

Wikipedia (I know) reckons that it is projected to be completed by 2012. But I can't find any descent sources on it, nor do I expect to find any.

North Korea should be proud! of the Egyptian company that is finishing thier building. That picture above wasn't taken in the winter, so there must be even more progress than what is shown there. I wonder what it will look like all lit up? AND will they do an opening ceremony like the Burj Kahlifa!?

Very beautiful indeed. Pyongyang looks better and better. Perhaps some of our North Korean forumers can take some more recent construction photos.

Perhaps ... maybe if they had some internet connection there and computers and digital cameras.

Keep an eye on Flickr user Kernbeisser, who regularly posts new photos of Pyongyang. (Some of his photos have already appeared in this thread.)
