The Hettema Group, in partnership with Legends, designed and produced the observation deck experience at the World Trade Center in New York City, New York.
For New Yorkers and people around the globe, One World Trade Center is much more than a beautiful new skyscraper in Lower Manhattan. It stands as a beacon of hope—a monumental icon of renewal and rebirth and an enduring testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
One World Observatory is a state-of-the-art guest experience that elevates the One World Trade Center observation deck from a spectacular sightseeing opportunity to an inspirational personal journey. A series of cutting-edge multimedia presentations and exhibits immerse guests in an uplifting tribute to the new World Trade Center as a global nexus of 21st-century commerce, culture, and community set in the heart of the most dynamic international city in the world.
Nationally renowned Legends operates the observation deck atop the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere at a height of 1776 feet. Construction on the facility began in early 2014, and opened May 29, 2015. One World Observatory provides millions of visitors with the ultimate observation deck experience on floors 100, 101 and 102.
