// Property investment firm LabTech reveals proposals to launch a landmark Observation Wheel in Camden
// The Observation Wheel features glass pods, each themed on a musical artist or genre
// It is located in Camden Market’s West Yard
New proposals have been unveiled to introduce a landmark Observation Wheel to Camden, in an effort to “enhance Camden’s position as a leading destination”.
London property investment company LabTech has launched the proposals to provide visitors with “unrivalled views of the city”.
Located in Camden Market’s West Yard, the proposed Observation Wheel features a number of glass pods, each themed on a musical artist or genre that depicts Camden’s music heritage.
LabTech’s plans also include the opening and refurbishment of the Grade II listed ‘Dead Dog Basin’ and East Vaults, which have never been accessible to the public before.
The Observation Wheel itself will be temporary for five years, while the opening and refurbishment of the Grade II listed Dead Dog Basin and East Vaults will be permanent.
“For the last 46 years, Camden Market has been regarded as the cultural landmark of the North London landscape,” LabTech commercial director, Maggie Milosavljevic said.
“It has made a significant contribution to contemporary London culture, spanning the worlds of film and television, music and events, arts, crafts, and fashion.
“Our proposed Observation Wheel would further cement LabTech’s pledge to invest in the area and support local businesses, while enhancing Camden’s position as a leading destination for culture in London.
“We will soon be sharing our vision with all those who live, work, and visit the area in order to get their feedback on our plans, before a planning application is submitted later this year.”
