kubik maltbie completed The Empire State Building (ESB) top-to-bottom reimagined Observatory Experience project in time for the summer tourist season. Doors opened to the public July 29. Located on the second floor of the international icon, the 10,000 sq. ft galleries invite guests on a journey from the building’s construction to its current place in pop culture. The new galleries feature immersive and interactive exhibits that fulfill the desire of today’s modern traveler to share authentic experiences – all as they make their way to the one-of-a-kind views from the 86th Floor Observatory.
kubik maltbie was an integral part of a cross-disciplinary, best-in-class team from the arts, architecture, technology, entertainment. fabrication and project management industries that together brought the reinvented historical monument to New York’s changing cultural landscape to life. Phase two follows the first phase, a brand-new Observatory entrance at 20 West 34th Street which was completed in August of 2018.
