New York Wheel Construction Update

The Big Pour

The New York Wheel will be the world’s largest observation wheel and everything about it is big…really big. The Wheel will eventually stand 630’ tall, twice the height of the Statue of Liberty including it’s pedestal, but the Wheel sits upon an intricately engineered foundation that goes more than 100’ into the earth. This video is one of many Beehive is creating to document the ongoing design and erection and deals with one 24 hour period during which several million pounds of special concrete was poured to both seal and create a strong foundation.
