Plans for giant Ferris wheel on Staten Island moving forward

A giant Ferris wheel is one step closer to being built on Staten Island.

The city Planning Commission unanimously approved plans for the New York Wheel and a neighboring outlet mall for Staten Island’s shoreline.

The plans will now go before the City Council for final approval.

Construction is expected to begin in 2014.

The Ferris wheel would open in 2016.
