The SkyView ferris wheel, a recently approved 20-story attraction, has set an opening date for Tuesday, July 16 at noon. The project was met with some outrage by Curbed commenters, but according to a spokesman, "people recognize what a special venue this is going to be."
As a reminder: this is not your run-of-the-mill county fair attraction. The wheel, which is in a parking lot near The Tabernacle, features 42 enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas that can fit around 6 people each. The wheel will cost $14.45 (includes tax) for adults and $9.10 for children and each ride lasts about 15 minutes.
