Day and Sunset Views from the Liberty One Observation Deck

Earlier this week I had a chance to check out the Liberty One Observation Deck during the day arriving at 4PM, and stayed through sunset til darkness.

One Liberty Observation Deck, Philly From The Top, located in the heart of Center City, is Philadelphia’s tallest enclosed observation deck. At 883 feet up, enjoy 360° views, 365 days a year, morning noon & night! Located within walking distance to other major attractions and just steps away from public transportation, get a top-down look at iconic sights, breathtaking views and discover the music, sports & culture that is the City of Brotherly Love.

 Open every day 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., One Liberty Observation Deck is owned and operated by Montparnasse 56, the group behind observation decks in Paris, Berlin and Chicago. For more information, visit or call 215.561.DECK (3325)

Address: 1650 Market St #5700, Philadelphia, PA 19103

On a clear day you can see forever, but all I really care about is seeing how the City is laid out. The building to the right, shaped like a U is the new Whole Foods/Rodin Museum Apartments. It’s nearly done. Very exciting. It really fits in nicely with the buildings that have been established there already. Next to it is an apartment building, The Parkway, then there a bunch of houses, then my building – The Philadelphian (condos), then the Pearlman Center of the Phila Museum of Art, then 2601 Parkway which is another condominium, to the far right you can see City View Condos, in the foreground is the current Whole Foods, which will soon be a Target.
