CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago’s third-tallest skyscraper could get a $185 million observation deck and an attraction that would dangle visitors over the building’s edge.
The Chicago Tribune reports that Aon Center officials unveiled the observatory plans Monday. They include a feature called the Sky Summit, gondola-like compartments with windows and see-through floors that would be lifted over the building’s side.READ MORE: First Case Of Omicron Variant In Wisconsin Confirmed
