Sears Tower — and it’s still called that for the time being — will invite its Skydeck visitors to enjoy a view usually reserved for window-washers and superheroes.
It’ll be a walk on the high side as visitors on the observation deck step into glass enclosures that extend 4.3 feet beyond the building. Beneath their feet in dizzyness-inducing splendor will be the city itself, 103 stories below, with an inch and a half of glass between person and pavement.
The attraction, called the Ledge, should open by early June and is part of a multimillion dollar renovation of the tourist spaces at the nation’s tallest building, said Randy Stancik, Skydeck general manager.
