Initially the new observation deck for One Liberty Place, located at 1650 Market Street, was scheduled to open this summer. Unfortunately, the big opening has been postponed for this fall. According to Philadelphia Magazine, a spokesperson confirmed that the opening is more likely to happen after Labor Day. The project has yet to be named but the groundbreaking ceremony with Mayor Michael Nutter is scheduled for next month.
Plans for the new observation deck were initially proposed back in September. The observation deck will be located on the 57th floor of One Liberty Place and plans to include a private elevator and cafe/restaurant. As the project progresses and groundbreaking commences, more details should be released.
