I've never quite understood these things. If there are 8 apartments per floor- when will each floor rotate? And if the floors rotate almost all the time- it will be stupid since they will line up with the elevators only once in a while, a thing which will create situations like "I'll come in 10 mins, I've just missed the elevator...".
This is a vision tower, a vision which has no reason to come true. Only 1 apartment-per-floor-rotating-tower is possible, but not very economical.

Georgia, anyone?
Why are britishers so annoyed of Russia's growing power ?!
Ah yes, they are USA`s barking dogs

All these rotating towers from Russia to Dubai are all a fraud. They were designed by this guy, David Fisher who is currently in prison. This nor any of the other "rotating" towers will ever be built.

It was all a scam from the start to take investors' cash.
