Boston Freedom Wheel, LLC. is proposing a 200-foot “observation wheel” at the end of Long Wharf on the Boston Harbor watersheet. The plans would include two, 2-story cafe buildings and outdoor seating for 700 people, covering a total of 34,000 square feet and operating year-round.
The company has said they will look to partner with local attractions and contribute to climate resiliency efforts at Long Wharf.
Opponents, however, worry about tourist crowds and an amusement-park feel. A local resident group, North End Ten, argues this area should be considered public parkland.
