Reimagined Skydeck Debuts at Willis Tower

Willis Tower’s Skydeck reopened Friday following extensive renovations, including the addition of an interactive museum. It’s one of several Chicago attractions reopening their doors as April draws to a close, including Navy Pier.

“A visit to Skydeck Chicago has always been about the exhilaration of seeing the city from a new perspective,” said Randy Stancik, general manager at Skydeck Chicago. “With the reimagined attraction, we wanted to take that experience a step further.

The project was spearheaded and developed by EQ Office, operator of Willis Tower. “Skydeck has always been the best way for locals and visitors to see all of Chicago, and now we have dramatically expanded and elevated the experience beyond what anyone has seen before,” said EQ Office portfolio director David Moore. The new destination was designed and constructed with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Thinc Design, Clark Construction Group and Chicago Scenic Studios.
