Try to build other attractive / great architecture instead of Ferris wheels as well. please!!!
The Ferris Wheel is just an appetiser for Singapore's new downtown and mega-integrated resort on the horizon (amongst others)

I'm with you on that one. The only thing that would make them interesting
to me is if they came off their hinges and rolled into the water.
But maybe they suit Asian cities better than say, London.

These big wheels in major cities are so tacky and eyesores. The Eye in London is such a disgrace to the city skyline!

[QUOTE=RafflesCity]Some model pics



My goodness. Singapore of the future. There's one heck of a lot LESS water! Progress has to happen, but it does look a tad congested. Still, I guess Singapore doesn't have much option when it comes to space. At least there'll be EVEN more to see from the wheel though!

Btw, I think it was RafflesCity that mentioned an observation tower on Orchard Road in the future. Is that just city speculation, or are there plans proposed? If anyone knows anything of this, could a new thread about it be started? I'd be interested to know. A spire like Auckland's or Vegas's would look pretty cool in Singapore.

Incidentally, back on the subject of wheels, it was the first I heard about Dubai's one. Is it me or does anyone else think (and it's just IMHO of course, nothing personal) that Dubai's wheel is pig-ugly?! I thought I was looking at some kind of dragon at first!

if you're referring to the bay, i think it will be exactly the same size it is now. maybe it just looks smaller when surrounded by buildings

Good point heirloom, I reckon you might be right. It's quite a deceptive optical illusion.

It is indeed approved, and the tender will be awarded to the developer next month. The thread for the Orchard Road tower is here

The Shanghai one is really impressive. The design of Singapore's ferris wheel is not very special. Although the view could be nice, an observation tower including an open air terrace would be better.
