Remember that crazy rotating tower planned for Dubai with the units starting at $3 million and all the, uh, crazy rotating? Well architect/developer/madman David Fisher is not going to let a little economic free-fall stand in his way. The WSJ reports: "Mr. Fisher says that groundbreaking, which he once hoped would take place last fall at a still-undisclosed location in Dubai, has been postponed until spring, mainly because of bureaucratic delays with construction permits. But he says that applications for apartments in the 80-story tower have continued to pour in -- more than a hundred in January alone -- and that a group of private investors from an unspecified 'North American city' has approached him to design another like it there."
