New Street in Pyongyang Seen on Artist’s Impressions





On February 25 this year, in the presence of Kim Jong Un, President of the State Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for building a new street in the Sopho area in the capital city of Pyongyang.
This project envisages building a characteristic street with over 4 000 flats at the northern gateway to the capital city of Pyongyang in 2023 in the sidelines of construction of 10 000 flats as the second stage in the Hwasong area according to the plan of building 50 000 flats in the city, a task set forth at the Eighth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
When the project is finished, there will appear at the northern gateway to the capital city a splendid street, an ideal street for the people, with a grand street axis and residential quarters consisting of super-highrise apartment houses and other houses of different shapes in good harmony with public buildings. This will add to the modern character and splendour of Pyongyang.
