A Giant Ferris Wheel Will Soon Rise Above Union Station

Construction will soon begin on a 200-foot observation wheel that will loom large over Union Station and provide sweeping views of the city.

The St. Louis Wheel, with 42 enclosed gondolas, will be among the first attractions to open this fall at the $187 million family entertainment center being built by Lodging Hospitality Management in the historic train shed.

The development’s centerpiece — a two-story aquarium featuring sharks and other water species — will open by the end of the year, company president Steve O’Loughlin said.

“The observation wheel will start to take shape in May and June,’’ O’Loughlin said during a recent tour of the site. “I think by August you’re going to see it fully constructed.’’

2. Yuck. I think the one in London looks terrible.

Not sure why anyone would want such a thing. If you want views use the Arch. The wheel seems cheap and redundant. Just my opinion, I lived there for a year a long, long time ago.
