‘Whey Aye’ Lichfields appointed on Europe’s tallest observation wheel

15 Aug 2018
Lichfields is delighted to assist the World Wheel Company deliver Europe’s tallest observation wheel on Newcastle Quayside.
Standing nearly 460ft high, the wheel dubbed ‘The Whey Aye’, will be 16ft taller than Lichfields’ previous observation wheel project, the London Eye. It is anticipated that the project would see more than £100m invested in the city and up to 550 jobs created.
In addition, the proposed development will see the creation of a new destination food and beverage experience for Newcastle, a world-leading visitor attraction, a family entertainment centre and a multi-purpose play and sports complex, with covered five-a-side pitches and tennis courts, as well as a state-of-the-art virtual golf club.
We believe we have assembled the strongest possible team of professional advisers to help us deliver our proposed development
