I hated this building, it seemed like a big concrete monster, but now I like it.

It's nice to see some progress on that building. It must have been a big shame for N. Korea to have this huge ruin stand in the center of the city for so many years.

I think "Middle" is a troll who regularly posts nonsensical but belligerent-sounding messages in the Japan forum. When the mods ban him he comes back under a new name, but his style is very distinctive.

I think it's a very interesting place to visit! Just because it's so different from the rest of the world. I hope you get the change to take some pictures.

I actually really like this tower, even when it was nothing but a concrete hulk. Something about it fascinates me.

I think we would all love to see some really good pictures of this construction site, close ups, and workers actually doing the work. Oh yeah, and some inside shots would be nice!

I am sure the North Koreans are not reading this and preparing for your visit. Are you up for a thorough body cavity search? Is colon cleansing hype?

Cladding on the 3rd side started only recently. ...

- Still the top segment doesn't work with the rest for me in shape and colour; this might get
a little better as cladding is completed.
- There are 5 top floors which look taller than 5 meters with horizontal accentuation, while
all those lower floors below receive only one glass colour: this makes RT look smaller as it is
on very first sight, as if the tower was only around 250m IMO.

Even considering that the facade area is huge, construction pace seems to be slow. On this face,
cladded and uncladded parts are seperated by a very accurate pattern: to me this could tell,
that the cladding of the middle angles might last a long, long time. But of course not in
historical dimension, like before 2008...
