You Could Soon Rappell Down Willis Tower in $20M Skydeck Expansion: Report

Visitors will be able to rappel from the 103rd floor to the 102nd in an ambitious $20 million expansion of the Willis Tower’s Skydeck, Crain’s is reporting.

The expansion would also see what’s been dubbed the “Ledgewalk,” an outdoor glass ledge where visitors would be secured in a safety harness to admire a view that’s sure to—well put you on edge, according to the report, which cites a Morningstar Credit Rating writeup.

"The Willis Tower has been under-managed and under-invested in for a number of years, and that changes today," Jon Gray, Blackstone's global head of real estate, said in February, Crain’s reported. [[223762671, C]]

The expansion could also see expanded retail and dining options aiming to enhance the duration of time visitors spend at the Skydeck.

A Blackstone spokeswoman declined to comment.
