Orlando Eye on I-Drive

By now you’ve probably read, heard, or seen something about the “Orlando Eye.” It’s a massive ferris wheel installment going in on I-Drive, part of a million dollar entertainment project being developed for the heavy-tourist traffic area. Once completed, the Eye will be one of the tallest buildings in the Central Florida area (I bet it’ll look really cool for those flying into and out of the area).

We were recently in the area and caught a quick pic of the current status of the Orlando Eye project progress:

It’s a tad tough to tell the size of this structure because there’s no context in this photo, but it’s going to be HUGE!

Here are a few fellow Central Floridians chatting about this, too:

The Orlando Eye is slated to start operation for guests sometime in 2015 (unless someone’s heard differently). We’ll be keeping an eye out for you!

While it won’t be quite as tall, do we think our Orlando Eye will reach the global iconic status of the London Eye?
