Interesting tower. I think this is the kind of thing Miami is lacking. Chintzy amusements to make tourists go "wow". It also gives Miami city itself an identity. Most outsiders don't think of downtown Miami because it's lacking iconic buildings.

‘ICONIC’ FERRIS WHEEL IS NOW UNDER CONSTRUCTION AT BAYSIDE MARKETPLACE

Quote:
Construction is now underway on an observation wheel at Bayside Marketplace in downtown Miami.

Opening is scheduled before the Super Bowl in February 2020, and pieces of the wheel have been in storage in Miami for months now waiting to be installed.

Bayside representatives have previously said the wheel will be “iconic.”

The 176-foot tall wheel will be lit up with LEDs, but will be much shorter than the London Eye which is 443 feet.

It will also be much smaller than the proposed Skyrise tower next door, which is proposed to top off 1,049 feet above sea level (Skyrise site work has been underway for some time, but little progress is evident).

Skywheel will feature forty-two air-conditioned gondolas that seat eight passengers each, for a total of 336 passengers. Each gondola will be fully enclosed and climate controlled. The slow-moving observation wheel ride will last from 12 to 15 minutes. Tickets will be sold by app or kiosk.

Not sure Miami should enter it's Dubai phase with this iffy tower.

Stick with subtle, original designs to grow a great skyline.
