A Giant Ferris Wheel overlooking Jerusalem's Old City?

Media is reporting that plans are at initial stages to install a Ferris wheel on the Armon Hanatziv Promenade, overlooking the Old City.

The Times of Israel writes: "The Jerusalem Development Authority has initiated plans for a dwarf version of the London Eye on a promenade that links mainly Palestinian East Jerusalem with the city’s Jewish West.

The big Ferris wheel, which would be around half the size of its 135-meter (443 feet)-high British inspiration, is being proposed for a point on the western section of the Armon Hanatziv Promenade, near Hebron Road in south Jerusalem.

If built — plans are understood to be at an early stage — it will join other projects envisioned for the promenade that include a series of slides going down the slopes and a zipline starting from a new visitors’ center being developed by the right-wing City of David Foundation close to the entrance to the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood."
