Spinning residential tower planned for Dubai

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again, “Oh, Dubai…”

The city that has the tallest tower in the world, the largest indoor theme park in the world, Uber for yachts, passenger-carrying drones, may soon be getting a rotating residential tower.

The idea comes courtesy of Dynamic Architecture, reports CNN. Plans for the 80-story, 1,273-foot tower — dubbed Dynamic Tower — includes floors that can independently rotate 360 degrees in both directions. Voice-activated technology would allow residents to spin their apartments on command, and wind turbines placed horizontally between the floors and solar panels on the roof that would produce the tower’s energy.

Architect David Fisher first pitched the idea, which came to him in New York’s Olympic Tower, in 2008 to no avail. This time round Dynamic Architecture is hoping the tower will be up and spinning by 2020.

CNN report that  the price for an individual apartment unit — which we’re assuming is a full floor — could range from $4 million to $40 million.
