The observatory is situated on levels 100, 101 and 102 of the One World Trade Centre and will provide visitors with panoramic views of the city from 381m high. Five dedicated elevators known as ‘Sky Pods’ will serve the observatory and can ascend to the 102nd floor in under 60 seconds. 

The 102nd floor will operate as a 2835sqm event space with maximum capacity for 300 people. The space will have floor-to-ceiling views of the city, ‘high-end’ décor and a customisable experience with a state-of-the-art sound system and HD projection capabilities. Catering will also be available.

The venue also offers three alternative dining options, from casual cafes to seated fine-dining, and an experience which stretches over all three floors and offers videos, images of the city and skyline technology which allows guests to interact with the city views.
