Nice photo. It will be great this vision so when the building is ready.

Well... It's funny how I never saw some people commenting here, and only appear to say stupid things or to talk off topic.

People, this thread is about 1WTC ALONE. Stay on topic. Or go elsewhere to discuss other topics.

This is the general NYC project thread of the intl. forums:

Okay what about the glass, anyone have an estimate when it should reach the roof? And do the mechanical floors have taller glass panels? If someone could answer those that would be great

Malkin, Meyer among bidders to operate 1 WTC observatory deck

May 08, 2012 10:00AM

"Operating observation decks atop large towers is so profitable that seven bidders, including two from outside the United States, submitted proposals to the Durst Organization and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey to do so at 1 World Trade Center, according to the New York Times.
Anthony Malkin, whose Empire State Building deck generates $60 million in profits per year submitted a bid to operate the rival deck. Restaurateur Danny Meyer, Lengends Hospitality Management, which runs retail at Yankee Stadium, and food service company Aramark also submitted bids.

Plans for the observatory deck call for five high-speed express elevators to bring visitors to the top three floors of the forthcoming tower for $20 to $25 per person. Annual revenues could exceed $100 million, provided the deck can lure some of the four million yearly visitors who visit the top of the Empire State Building. The observatories at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, the Statue of Liberty and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum also offer competition. [NYT]"

Wow, 100 million dolars a year. They could pay for the entire tower in 35 years

4M visitors paying 20 $ each is already 80M. The rest should come from a restaurant and bar?

From what I know leasing office space generates most of their profit. The observation deck and a possible restaurant would generate only a minor part compared to it.
