Wow, I couldn’t resist sharing this great post from inhabitat with everybody here at gliving.

“What is it,” you might be wondering?

It’s a new a 200-unit solar powered apartment tower – that will rotate!

“The latest spire to be added to the desert landscape of Dubai will be the Time Residences building in the City of Arabia…The complex will turn a full 360 degrees over the course of a week, utilizing stored solar energy to power the turning mechanisms.

“Sitting on a high-tech bearing system, the 80,000 ton building will rotate using solar power that will be stored and distributed from a power plant in the base of the building. In addition to the 5mm/second rotation, it will also feature a timepiece down its length, allowing onlookers to gauge the hour by studying the constantly-changing façade features.
“The $109 million dollar project is expected to start in June 2007.”

Perhaps a bit conspicuous but but at least it’s done in an environmentally responsible way?
