Dubai, Jun 29: Dubai's latest mind-boggling project will be yet another first in the West Asia -- a rotating tower that turns 360 degrees in seven days from its base and offers a new view of the city every day. The view, though, comes with a price starting at a whopping 6000 dirham per square foot.
''It is a precision 'Timepiece Building' powered by the sun and scientific imagination, turning 360 degrees in seven days, and offering a 360-degree panoramic penthouse views from all apartments ensuring a new view of the city every day,'' Tav Singh, director of 360 degrees Time World, told the Gulf News on phone from the UK. The tower would rotate at such a slow pace that people living there won't even notice the changes, he said. The construction of the tower would begin this August and be completed by 2010, Mr Singh said. Marketing of the tower will be launched in New Delhi apart from New York, Prague, Moscow and Hong Kong. The announcement comes a week after architect David Fisher announced a 11 billion Dirham 80-storey tower in which all the floors would rotate at individual paces, re-shaping the building.
Apart from these, Dubai's High Rise Property had also announced a Rotating Tower to be built here.
