World's Tallest Hotel

The Ryugyong Hotel (or Ryu-Gyong Hotel or Yu-Kyung Hotel or the 105 Building) is a towering, empty concrete shell that was once intended for use as a hotel in Sojang-dong, in the Potong-gang District of Pyongyang, North Korea.
The hotel's name comes from one of the historic names for Pyongyang: Ryugyong, or "capital of willows".
Its 105 stories rise to a height of 330 m (1,083 ft), and it boasts some 360,000 m² (3.9 million ft²) of floor space, making it the most prominent feature of the city's skyline and by far the largest structure in that country.

Construction started in 1987 and ceased in 1992. If the building were ever completed, it would be the world's tallest hotel and the seventh largest building in the world.

However, as of 2006, it remains unfinished and uninhabited.
