Open House New York members are invited to a presentation by Perkins Eastman and S9 Architecture 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.

Projects in Planning is a series of OHNY membership events that explores the design and planning process of a single project during its early stages of development and construction. Projects in Planning is made possible with sponsorship support from
