[IMGCAP(2)]NEW YORK CITY-When Italian architect Dr. David Fisher today revealed the launch of the Dynamic Tower at the Plaza Hotel here, the world’s first building in motion, to be constructed in Dubai and Moscow, he revealed that the third tower will be located in New York City. Although he did not reveal specifics about the Manhattan rotating tower, he said he was already in talks with developers.

Rotating Tower Dubai Development Ltd. headed by the Dynamic Group is the developer of the $700 million, 80-floor Dubai tower, which is entirely self-powered. The building will be 1,380-feet tall and apartments will range in size from 1,334 sf to Villas or Penthouses of 12,916 sf, complete with a parking space inside the apartment. Fisher told the audience that the building, which generates electricity from wind turbines mounted horizontally between each floor, will begin construction in the next few months.

[IMGCAP(1)]The second Dynamic Tower revealed is planned for Moscow and is now in the advanced design phase, with pre-assembling of the units to start soon and completion scheduled for 2010. The developer is the Mirax Group, headed by Sergei Polonsky. Fisher told the audience that the construction cost of the Moscow tower–which will have 70 floors and be 1,310-feet tall–is $400 million.

“Our intention is to build the third Rotating Skyscraper in New York,” Fisher stated. “Additional Dynamic Towers will be built around the world, following an expression of interest from developers, governments, and public officials to construct a Dynamic Tower in Canada, Germany, Italy, Korea and Switzerland.”

Fisher explained that the Dynamic Tower has infinite design possibilities, as each floor rotates independently to create a building that constantly changes shape, resulting in a unique and ever evolving architectural structure. Not only will the tower be self-powered, but it will be built entirely from prefabricated parts that are custom made in a workshop, resulting in cost savings, also requires far fewer workers on the construction site, thereby dramatically lowering construction costs, Fisher said. He explained that the first factory will be in southern Italy. Fisher said that each floor of the building can be completed in only seven days.
