    The Port of San Diego is reportedly proposing a new tower on the San Diego Bay which could rival Sea World's sky tower.

    “SkySpire San Diego" would be least 250 tall, just 70 feet shorter than Sea World's sky tower.

    According to U-T San Diego, the new tower would have gondolas which would carry passengers up to an observation deck.

    They could also take an elevator to the top, to a restaurant of up to 200 seats- offering 360 degree views of the bay.

    The project would cost about $40 million to build by developer U.S Thrill Rides. It could generate $22 million a year.

    The Port of San Diego was recently pitched the idea of a giant Ferris wheel by three separate developers. No decision has been made on their proposals.
