Atlanta Council clears way for downtown Ferris wheel

Skyview Atlanta is coming to Atlanta.

The Atlanta City Council on Monday voted unanimously to provide an encroachment for a right of way that would allow a 20-story Ferris wheel to be built in downtown Atlanta.

A private company is building the Ferris wheel, which would be next to The Tabernacle on Luckie and Nassau streets. But because the massive structure would extend over 23 feet on to both streets, the council had to approve the encroachment.

The Ferris wheel, which has previously been housed in Paris and Pensacola, could open as early as June.
