SKYVUE LAS VEGAS GOES VERTICAL
Iconic Observation Wheel Completes Initial Phase of Construction and Begins Work on Retail District
WHAT: Tomorrow morning, 12 semi-trucks will arrive from Los Angeles via escorted convoy transporting the massive steel support cables for SkyVue Las Vegas. Set to become the largest observation wheel in the Western Hemisphere, SkyVue’s cables will be the largest of their kind in the nation, capable of extending from Las Vegas to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge if stretched end to end.
Passersby can witness SkyVue’s vertical ascent as construction commences on the retail district. The multilevel shopping center will boast 140,000 square feet of retail space, a six-concept food court, and prime frontage on Las Vegas Boulevard.
