The Dubai Eye will cost 1 billion dirhams (NZ$400 million) to build and will stand at 210 metres, according to a statement on the website of the emirate's ruler. It will be the centerpiece of a 6 billion-dirham (NZ$2.3 billion) project known as Bluewaters that includes a hotel, restaurants and a family entertainment center on a man-made island off Dubai's coast. The first phase is set to start in April.
