The world's BIGGEST ferris wheel set for Dubai
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!
