The world's BIGGEST ferris wheel set for Dubai

01 Jun 2015

Dubai is set to break yet another architectural record. See the pics!

Located off the Jumeirah Beach Residence coastline, Bluewaters will feature the largest ferris wheel in the world, standing at a jaw-dropping 210 meters.

The Dubai Eye is said to offer breathtaking views of Dubai’s exotic coastline and iconic landmarks such as Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest sky scraper.

Meraas Development revealed in a statement: “The piazza at the base of the wheel will serve as an entertainment zone and a unique venue for private parties, weddings and conferences. Additionally, a large LED screen mounted on the wheel will create an innovative electronic platform for broadcasting movies, advertisements, and interactive information.”

‘‘Bluewaters will feature a bespoke souq encircled by a promenade that will boast alfresco dining outlets serving a wide variety of cuisine. The souq will host an eclectic mix of retail stores and a food hall offering fresh produce in a traditional market atmosphere. Complementing the ambience, Bluewaters will host a boutique five star hotel and varied residential options.”

Building began in May 2013 and is estimated to be completed by 2018, costing Dhs6 billion!
