Recent satellite images have shown that building work has recommenced on North Korea’s ominous “Hotel of Doom.”

The Daily Mail have reported that new images of the 105-story Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang depict construction trucks surrounding the pyramid-like building as well as several other buildings.

There’s also been new tourist photos showing cranes around the hotel.

Ryugyong Hotel nicknamed “Hotel of Doom,” has cost an estimated $552 million, which at the time was equivalent to two per cent of North Korea’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), but has yet to host a single guest.

Building work was abandoned in 1992 as North Korea fell on hard times following the collapse of the Soviet Union, its leading benefactor.
