Since Khufuâ€™s pyramid isnâ€™t an option, consider this one being built in Pyongyang, North Korea. Currently under construction, this hotel would be complete at somewhere a little over 1,000 feet tall [under 350 meters, for my metric ninjas]. All that being said, construction halted in 1992, mainly due to budget constraints. What if it were completed, you ask? Well, it would be the worldâ€™s largest hotel/seventh largest building, have 3.9 million square feet of interiror space, and 7 [yes, seven] rotating restaurants.
Another interesting tidbit – in official photos of the city, the building is doctored so it appears illuminated at night, even though it is not in use. So much for honesty in politics.
