At 1,353 feet and 110 stories above the streets of downtown Chicago, The Ledge at Willis Tower’s Skydeck will transform any visitor’s–or local’s for that matter–experience with the Windy City. In January 2009, Willis Tower owners began a major renovation of the beloved Skydeck, which originally opened in 1974, and served as a premier tourist attraction throughout the skyscraper’s tenure as the Sears Tower. When ownership changed hands, the fresh blood added a fresh look–and adrenaline rush–to the 103rd floor in the form of retractable glass balconies extending about 4 feet over Wacker Drive and the Chicago River below. Still the 8th tallest building in the world, and the absolute tallest in the Western Hemisphere, Willis Tower’s Skydeck will reward anyone brave enough to step onto its Ledge with unparalleled views of Illinois’ enthralling metropolis.
