Related Companies is celebrating the grand opening of Hudson Yards on March 15, 2019. But the megadevelopment’s observation deck, resting 1,100 feet above Manhattan’s West Side, doesn’t open to the public until 2020.

The Real Deal got a sneak peek at the future tourist attraction, dubbed “the edge.”

The deck spans 7,500 square feet and stretches 65 feet out from the 101st floor of the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed 30 Hudson Yards. Its height makes it the tallest outdoor deck in the Western Hemisphere and the fifth tallest in the world. And it boasts expansive views of New York City and New Jersey.

Related will be competing with observatory decks at One Vanderbilt, One World Trade, the Empire State building and Rockefeller Center. Prices haven’t been set for the deck at 30 Hudson Yards.

Check out the video above to see the insane views from “the edge.”
