There's a plan to build a new skyscraper that is being called the world's first building in motion.An Italian architect unveiled his design in New York. The 80-story tower is expected to be built in the Middle Eastern country of Dubai.

Revolving floors would offer residents a constantly changing view of the Persian Gulf and the skyline of the capital city. Special elevators would allow penthouse residents to park their cars inside their apartments.

Each floor will be built in an Italian factory then shipped to the site and attached to the core.

The skyscraper is expected to take just under two years to build.
