Correction "Chicago's Sears Tower"


Chicago’s Willis Tower reveals plan for ambitious $500M makeover

Beyond reinforcing the Willis Tower as a civic destination, its owners aim to make the 43-year-old building the ultimate place to work. Roughly 460,000 square feet of existing space within the building will be reconfigured with much set aside exclusively for use by the building’s commercial tenants. Planned amenity additions include multiple lounges, meeting and events spaces, and a newly opened 33rd floor fitness center.

The tower’s observation deck is also set to receive a major overhaul. The 103rd-floor observatory will be expanded—possibly to a second level—and see the creation of a new thrill attraction designed to give visitors a new perspective of what it’s like to be 1,353 feet above street level. The upcoming feature would supplement the tower’s current “ledge” attraction which allows guests to venture beyond the observatory’s windows by stepping inside a set of transparent glass boxes. In addition, the renovation work will also add a new underground access point for the Skydeck.
