Estimated cost: AED1.2 billion (US $330 million - Euro 255 million)
Will be the world's first prefabricated skyscraper with 90% of the 68-storey structure built as modules in a factory, actual construction time will be cut to 18 months, as opposed to the average 30 for a building of similar size. The only part of the 313m-tall tower that will be built on site using traditional construction techniques is the central core, which will house lifts, emergency staircases and other utilities.
The entire tower will rotate 360° while changing shape. A single rotation will take 90 minutes.
77 wind turbines will be fixed to the tower, along with solar panels, the project will run off natural energy, as well as produce enough to power five buildings in the vicinity.
