Photos of Dubai’s iPod-inspired ‘iPad’ residental tower

Last Friday we covered the story of an iPod-inspired resdiental tower planned for Dubai. SkyscraperCity has posted photos of a large model of the “iPad” tower.

“Real estate developer Omniyat Properties is planning to launch projects worth more than Dh3 billion in 2007, starting with a tower inspired by Apple’s iPod MP3 player,” Robert Ditcham reports for Gulfnews.

“The 23-storey building, which is scheduled to bring more than 200 units onto the market in 2009, was designed by Hong Kong-based architects James Law Cybertecture International,” Ditcham reports. “The tower will sit atop a docking station angled at six degrees to give the exact look.”

  1. Hmm, I don’t really see the iPod inspiration in this tower myself. Sure it looks futuristic and it’s called “iPad” and all, but it doesn’t really look much like an iPod to me. Like the earlier comment said, it reminds me more of Tron than anything else.

  2. i think it’s a ballsy design but i can’t imagine living in one of the suites with all the outside building lights turned on. You’d never have an evening view as the lights would blot it out. And how much would the maintenance fees cost with so many lights on? Are the lights LED or solar powered?
