Ferris wheel planning in Vegas

The question of competing giant Ferris wheel-type projects on the strip ultimately depends on who has all this direction. At least, says developer Howard Bullock. Buloch, who is behind the Skyview development on the south end of the strip across from the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, said he got two giant 23,000 pounds of bearings needed to power the 500-foot-tall London Eye-style wheels that are central to the project. He unveiled one of the bearings in May when he announced plans for a $300 million retail and entertainment space. 안전한 파워볼사이트

He raised the bearing issue Thursday, a day after Clark County approved the land use and design of Project Linke, a $500 million complex being developed by Caesars Entertainment between Flamingo Las Vegas and Imperial Palace Hotel & Casino. Bullock did not know whether Caesars acquired the bearings. “These two large bearings take 18 months to manufacture,” Bullock said.

On Thursday, Caesars spokesperson Gary Thompson said he plans to reveal more details about Project Linq at an Aug. 17 briefing, including technical aspects of creating a larger observation wheel than the Singapore Flyer and London Eye. Each of the 32 rooms on the wheel can accommodate up to 30 people.

Company officials have told Clark County that they hope to begin work on the Lynk project later this month. The work will employ 3,000 construction workers and create 1,500 jobs when completed.

Project Linke includes 326,000 square feet of retail, dining, and entertainment venues, with wheels being built towards Audrey Street at the back of the complex. Audrey and Ida Avenue are converted from public to private roads, and can be parked on adjacent parcels.
