As reported a few days back, the first images of the model of that iPAD tower in Dubai were just released at the Cityscape convention. And just as expected, it’s stupid, tacky, and will likely sell out every single unit in mere minutes. Here’s a little more from O’Grady’s:
Real estate developer Onmiyat Properties will begin construction on the building in 2007 and be 23 stories tall with more than 200 living units with construction expected to be completed in 2009. The structure was designed by Hong Kong architecture firm James Law Cybertecture International according to a piece on UAEPropertyTrends.com and will sit atop a “docking station” angled at six degrees to model it perfectly after the iPod.
