Default revolving tower - $30m EACH aprt

'Not only can the apartments rotate a full 360 degrees, they can do so at a pace of your choice. “It’s all voice activated, you can go faster, slower, start and even stop. The change is smooth and soft,” says Fisher in the video.
You can also rotate your apartment according to the sunlight – meaning you can either follow the sun or stay in the shade. Nice.
The best bit, besides the constant changing view, is the fact that the electricity is free – there’ll be wind turbines between each floor.
The free power may help soften the blow for what you’re about to read next… each apartment costs a whopping US$30 million'

It'd be cheaper to buy an entire floor and just move from apartment to apartment as mood suits.

Lets hope the soundproofing between floors is good. I can hear my neighbours scraping chairs and slamming doors, would hate to think of the noise as your upstairs neighbour rotates their entire flat round.

People considering spending $30m on an apartment are unlikely first think; 'what would be a much, much shitter but ultimately cheaper way of doing this.'

Presumably each floor is one apartment, or when you revolve your apartment round the other apartments on your floor would revolve round as well!

You've all missed a key word in this article: "plans"

I have plans to write a book, learn spanish, gain 4kg, quit my job.... few come to fruition.

I didn't miss it.

But I see you and I are the lucky few whose weight problem is the opposite of most

I think it will be a perfect location from which to get a view of Dubai Waterfront, Nakheel Harbour and the Arabian Canal, not to mention the Dancing Towers and the creek cultural island, Jumeirah Garden City, Bawadi and the Mall of Arabia. You might even be able to see all of the underwater hotels.

I remember Jumeirah Garden City. Meraas had a major 3-D fly through display set up at CityScape just before the crash. It was a little kid's fantasy of a model city based on too many Disney cartoons and playing too many SimCity games. Let's just hope the poor 3D consultants got paid.

Eh. Better thin than fat. Live longer. Unless you were pawned by the prostate C.
