New York is hoping to get the green building standard certification of LEED Platinum. The firm is toying with the idea using renewable energy sources to power the Ferris wheel, including wind, wave, and solar power. They would sell back any excess power to the grid. There will also be a big 6 acre green roof for concerts and festivals. New York better milk the title “World’s Tallest” Ferris wheel because once the Dubai Eye wheel is built it will own the title. The Dubai Eye Ferris wheel will be 60 ft taller than the New York Ferris wheel.
