Architect: Baikdoosan Architects
This project was built in anticipation of a joint Olympic Games between North and South Korea. when the plans for that never materialized, this project became abandoned. Despite its towering presence over Pyongyang, official maps do not show its location.
When topped-out, the Ryugyong Hotel was the ninth tallest highrise building in the world by roof height.
Prior to the construction of Taipei 101, this was the only structure in the world outside of the United States with over 100 floors.
The project was on hold for 16 years (1992-2008) before it finally resumed construction.
The planned opening date for the hotel is April 15th 2012; the 100th anniversary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung.
