First real contender for Wonder of the World 3rd Millennium Style: the Time Residences tower in the City of Arabia.  Moving 5mm per second at a cost of 21 kettles of electricity per (but every drop is fresh-squeezed from the sun, so no worries) it makes a full rotation every, you guessed it, 24 hours, despite being 80,000 tonnes.  Sales on the 200-flat complex to begin in March 2007; project slated for completion sometime in 2009.  [GT]
