Rotating Tower Planned For Dubai
Earlier in February, I told you about a rotating home that could swivel to give you 360 degree-views around your house. Now, the rotating home fascination has hit Dubai as well. A new tower is planned for Jumeirah Village South in Dubai. The Dh175million Rotating tower features 72 residential units in total including four rotating penthouses and a rotating villa with its own car lift. Five of the tower’s 15 storeys will rotate through 360 degrees at speeds which can be selected by the resident once in either three, six, 12 or 24 hours.
Gulfnews reports that , ‘The idea is the brain child of Faisal Ali Moosa, managing partner at High Rise Real Estate, who saw a series of single rotating villas in Germany and decided to build a city of them in Dubai.’ The rotating tower is expected to complete in 2008 and the construction will begin in August, this year. But, if you want to reserve a residence in the luxurious rotating tower, then you better not delay, for a Saudi prince has already placed a Dh25million bid for the single villa built at the peak of the tower, which will have its own car lift and three parking spaces.
