At long last, Philadelphia will soon have a proper observation deck.
And today, the team developing the coming-soon attraction announced its name: One Liberty Observation Deck.
Scheduled to open in fall 2015, One Liberty Observation Deck will provide Philadelphia with panoramic bird’s-eye views of the city from the 57th floor of One Liberty Place in downtown Philadelphia.
Now under construction, Montparnasse 56 (or M56) — a Parisian-based company that operates observation decks in the John Hancock Tower in Chicago and the Montparnasse 56 Tower in Paris — is building the observatory, which will also include interactive elements and artistic installations.
There are currently only a few spots around the city that offer sky-high views of Philadelphia, including the City Hall Tower Observation Deck, R2L and Nineteen.
We can’t wait to check out the new observation deck, and know that it will afford visitors and residents access to some amazing skyline views — and the accompanying photography and Instagrams.
Tickets to One Liberty Observation Deck will go on sale online just before opening, and general admission will be $14 for youth (ages 3-11) and $19 for adults.
