It’s time we reluctantly stuck a fork in Howard Bulloch’s South Strip Ferris wheel, Skyvue. It’s besieged by liens and unpaid bills, which Bulloch is going to cover by — wait for it — borrowing still more money. The developer is all happy-days-are-here-again about Skyvue but when the construction crane has been dismantled and the main bearing sent to Germany, it’s never cause for optimism. If regarded as abstract art, Bulloch’s ‘twin towers’ are impressively monumental, though. Give Gary Loveman this much credit — if you’ll pardon the pun — he at least had the money in place before erecting Linq’s rival Ferris wheel, the Vegas High Roller. You’ll see damned little from it, once it’s finished, but it’ll get built.
