Plans for Dynamic Tower is back on track after being put on hold for over eight years. After constant showcasing of amazing skyscrapers in Dubai, another one is being pushed-through after it was put on hold for over eight years.

Beating any other rotating restaurants, the world’s first rotating skyscraper will soon happen in Dubai. This plan was first introduced last 2008 and was put on hold until recently. After the interview with David Fisher, an Italian architect about this new project called the ‘Dynamic Tower’, the educational channel called Your Discover Science posted an online video which was over three minutes long which then piqued the interests of many.

Despite not revealing the project deadline, David Fisher said that the tower is the first building designed by four dimensions. He said in the video footage, “In other words, it is the first building that continues to change and never look the same”. It will take 11 billion dhs ($3b) to construct the skyscraper and the apartments can be bought for 110 million dhs ($30m), as cited in the previous reports from Gulf News.

“The Dynamic Group decided to have in this iconic landmark a ‘Wellness Experience’ instead of a ‘hotel’. Indeed, it will no longer be a hotel but a new product in line with today’s life. "How many stars? This hotel will be beyond stars.” – reads from Dynamic Architecture website, which are responsible for the project designs.

With the building being adjustable to speeds, each apartment will independently rotate and the building will be constantly changing. “Hotel guests will be given the unique opportunity to shape the building and choose their view, thus redefining complete luxury in the hospitality sector. In doing so, they will also design the building and the skyline of the city,” stated in the website of the firm.

Upon completion of the project, it will be the very first 4D skyscraper in the world, boasting at 420 meters’ height and covering around 1.2 million square feet area. The 80-storey building will also have wind turbines positioned horizontally between each floor and solar panels on the roof so it can all function with total self-power.
