Update: A reader pointed out that the Port Authority and Durst organisation, which is behind the construction, scrapped plans to a full-fledged eatery on top of 1 WTC last month. But a spokesperson for Durst tells us that respondent could have included food and beverage plans in their proposals.
Fans of Shake Shack, rejoice: Danny Meyer, the force behind the beloved burger chain, has made a bid to operate the observatory at still-under-construction 1 World Trade centre, according to the New York Times.
While Meyer is one of seven bidders for the project to run New York City’s highest and largest observatory, he’s the one attracting the most buzz, thanks to his high profile restaurants like Gramercy Tavern and popular concession stands at Citi Field.
And while there’s no word on what Meyer would put in the space if he wins, we can only hope that a Shake Shack will be included in the plans.
Other bidders include Legends Hospitality Management, which runs the concession stands at Yankee Stadium, and Anthony E. Malkin, who operates the Empire State Building.
The observatory at 1 WTC will span three floors, from the 100th to the 102nd. Under current plans, high-speed elevators will zip visitors to the top for around $25.
The building recently hit a major milestone, recapturing its title as the tallest building in New York City.
