NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Final plans for the One World Trade Center observation deck have been approved.
The governors of New York and New Jersey announced Legends Hospitality, which handles Yankee Stadium and Cowboys Stadium, has been chosen to develop and operate the observation deck.
The deck is expected to generate $875 million in revenue for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and will attract some 3.8 million visitors a year.
The Port Authority Board of Commissioners approved the 15-year deal in a vote on Wednesday.
“It provides a major amenity for the millions of people who visit,” Port Authority Executive Director Pat Foye told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell.
Unlike at the Empire State Building and at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, there will be no outdoor space.
“Outdoor options were considered and deemed not the be feasible,” Foye told Haskell.
