Last week, the city approved structural design changes to the New York Wheel project in St. George, on the northern tip of Staten Island, according to Commercial Observer. The changes mostly have to do with the 950-car parking garage, which will now be four levels and more environmentally sustainable. Over the summer, construction began on the footprint of the 630-foot-tall Ferris wheel, and by August, cranes arrived on site. The majority of the caissons have been planted, and construction of the Ferris wheel will begin early next year, with completion slated for the first half of 2017.
