Projects in Planning: New York Wheel

« All Events

Join Open House New York for a presentation by Jonathan Cohn, AIA, LEED AP, Principal, Perkins Eastman; Navid Maqami, AIA, LEED AP, Principal, S9 Architecture; and Richard Marin, President and CEO, New York Wheel, on the design and execution of the New York Wheel. Currently under construction in St. George on the northern shore of Staten Island, the 630-foot tall wheel will be one of the tallest observation wheels in the world, offering visitors unparalleled views of the New York Harbor.

The new complex transforms a previously underused site into a vibrant destination that includes the New York Wheel’s 70,000 square-foot terminal, parking garage, and bus facility, as well as five acres of new publicly accessible open space, and links between Richmond Terrace, reconnecting the neighborhood to the waterfront 25 feet below. Along with the adjoining Empire Outlets, the project is slated to open in 2017.
