DPRK: Housing construction progresses in Pyongyang area

Pyongyang, Jun 10 (Prensa Latina) The construction of housing in the capital's Hwasong area is progressing at a good pace in its third stage, the state news agency ACNC reported today.

This phase includes the construction of 10,000 apartments to complete the delivery of some 50,000 next year, in addition to numerous public and service facilities, in a harmonious environment conceived in a native style.

The second stage was completed last April, when the general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and chairman of the State Affairs Committee, Kim Jong Un, handed over their new homes to 10,000 families.

The country’s top leader has urged the builders involved in the program to turn Pyongyang “into a civilized city of world fame, worthy of the power of a Korea mighty in name and deed”.

The first stage of the urbanization was also completed in April last year with the handover of 10,000 apartments, following a ceremony in which Kim, who regularly checks the progress of the works, presented the inauguration ribbon.
