One World Trade Center Observation Deck concept design deadline extension

One World Trade Center, the tallest building at the redeveloped World Trade Center site, will be 104 storeys high and include approximately 3 million sq ft of office space on 71 floors, a public lobby with 50ft ceilings, a wide array of retail, and a sky-level Observation Deck. World class in stature, One World Trade Center will provide an internationally recognised, high profile viewing destination.

WTC Tower 1 LLC is hereby extending the due date for submission of statements of qualifications from entities interested in developing, operating, and managing the Observation Deck at One World Trade Center. RFQ responses are due no later than February 10, 2012 at 5pm. The Request for Proposals will be issued shortly.

At the Request for Proposal stage, entities may propose either with a plan to subsequently select a third party creative and design team and the management of that team or, alternatively, may elect to propose with an existing in-house team of designers, architects, engineers, and other consultants to complete the creative and design services.

Located on the 100th through 102nd floors, the Observation Deck will offer dramatic, 360- degree panoramic multistate views of New York City, New York Harbor including the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Hudson and East River waterfronts as well as views of the World Trade Center Memorial. Featuring approximately 85,000 total square feet, the Observation Deck is positioned to be one of the best-located and most well known viewing attractions in the world.

See the WAN Tender Alerts Service for more details.
