In 1987, workers began constructing what would be the tallest hotel in the world in Pyongyang, North Korea.

The frame was finished two years later — a little behind schedule, the structure was supposed to open in 1989. Then in 1992, after the collapse of ally and backer the Soviet Union, work stopped completely on Ryugyong Hotel.

The 105-story,1,083-foot structure protrudes above the rest of the North Korean capital’s skyline. It remains the largest abandoned building in the world.

Recent satellite images suggest that construction has restarted on North Korea’s ominous "Hotel of Doom."

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

Tourist photos have also recently surfaced showing cranes around the hotel.

The "Hotel of Doom," as it was nicknamed, has cost approximately 470 million euros ($552 million) to date but has yet to host a single guest, the Independent reported.

The 105-story skyscraper was finally unveiled this summer after being under construction for nearly 30 years, although its doors still remain closed.

War would possibly make this futile, but it is interesting.
