Thanks beta29. Do you know anything about the ferris wheel project in Berlin that would be similar to the London Eye? Will it be built?

With this 3 new buildings the Friedrichswerder project is completed.
Construction is going to start soon.

If you ask me the architecture is nothing spectacular, quite boring boxes!

I found an article about the wheel....but it´s in german

Das geplante Riesenrad am Berliner Zoo soll ein wellenförmiges Eingangsgebäude erhalten. Dynamik, Leichtigkeit und Bewegung bestimmten den Entwurf der "Abflughalle", sagte der Architekt Ingo Pott. Die Konstruktion aus Stahl, Metall und Glas hebe das Riesenrad als Hauptattraktion optisch noch hervor. Das 185 Meter hohe Riesenrad werde das 11.500 Quadratmeter große Gebäude durchschneiden, so dass die Kapseln von allen drei Geschossen aus zu sehen sein werden.

In dem Terminal soll es Einzelhandel, gehobene Gastronomie sowie Ausstellungs- und Veranstaltungsflächen geben. Die drei Etagen werden mit Roll- und Freitreppen verbunden sein. Nach Sicherheits- und Zugangskontrollen wird der Gast im zweiten Geschoss die Kapseln des Riesenrads betreten. In dem Gebäude sind Stellplätze für 200 Fahrräder und 20 Kleinbusse sowie 40 Parkplätze für Behinderte vorgesehen. Vor der Halle werden laut Planungen 17 Reisebusse parken können. Der Verkehrsingenieur Bodo Fuhrmann geht davon aus, dass ein Großteil der Besucher mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln anreisen wird. Für Autofahrer seien genügend Plätze in den umliegenden Parkhäusern vorhanden.

Der Geschäftsführer der Great Berlin Wheel GmbH & Co.KG, Michael Waiser, rechnet mit der Baugenehmigung im Oktober. Wenn der Zoo seinen jetzigen Betriebshof rechtzeitig räume, könne sich das Riesenrad erstmals im Herbst 2009 drehen. Die Great Berlin Wheel hat das Areal nach Waisers Angaben für 25 Millionen Euro gekauft. (mit ddp)


I means, they hope to get started with the project in October this year, so it would be ready in autumn 2009

HEIGHT: 185 Meters

Thanks so much! You're awesome. I wonder if the individual compartments will look really cool like the glass pods on the London Eye. Hopefully it won't be ugly like the one in Wien.

It will be quite similar to the London wheel.....just taller.

And Viennas wheel is not ugly...it was built in the year 1897.....so what do you expect!?

This is not entirely true. It is founded by 2 German brothers in the Netherlands in the year 1841, and it's European headquarters are in Vilvoorde (Belgium) right now. But it is true that C&A is popular in Germany.

On topic: I really hope the big observation wheel gets build. It would be a nice addition for the Zoo area.

Only the German headquarters are based in Düsseldorf. Check Wikipedia if you want to know more about C&A's history . We shoudn't continue this off topic chatting for to long, or people will get mad .

I'm sorry big mister Spijkenisse , but I thought that you didn't have time to post on this forum anymore since you are running your little hotel in Milton Keynes right now?

Edit: I downloaded the new version of Google Earth this week, and you can clearly see the new runway of BBI as a big sandy strip. Sehr toll!
