At 110 stories and 1,353 feet above the streets of downtown Chicago, The Ledge at the Willis Tower (formerly known as Sears Tower) 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. Soon, some fresh blood would add 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.
As the absolute tallest in the Western Hemisphere, Willis Tower's Skydeck draws 1.5 million people a year who are eager to ascend the 110-story, 1,454 foot (443 meter) building for awesome panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside. While you wait, you can watch a film about the Willis Tower. Then, hop in for the ear-popping, 70 second elevator ride up to the 103rd floor deck! From here, the entire city stretches below, and you can see exactly how Chicago is laid out.
