Pile Foundations for Huge Ferris Wheel on Seattle Waterfront

Seattle’s Pier 57 will soon be home to a 175-foot tall Ferris wheel with 41 air-conditioned gondolas. The foundations for this soon-to-be-landmark consist of 150-ft long, 30-36" steel pipe piles driven through glacial till. The piles are being driven by Manson Construction using an APE Super Kong vibratory hammer. [Source and Photo: APE News]
