shanghai scraps plan to build biggest ferris wheel


Shanghai has abandoned a plan to build the world's largest Ferris wheel near the waterfront Bund district, the Oriental Morning Post said. The local government recently said the project was not feasible. Instead, it plans to erect an office building to accompany a new international passenger wharf nearby as part of a rejuvenation plan of the north Bund area, the paper said. The government plans to hold an auction for the land, which is valued at 2 billion yuan.Lillian Yang
