The best of Chicago are all in one at 360 Chicago. With scenery like the shoreline, Navy Pier downtown Chicago, the Magnificent Mile, and, on a clear day, surrounding states, it is no wonder that this attraction has become a classic hot-spot.
The John Hancock Center
The John Hancock Center, home to 360 Chicago, played a significant role in modern day Chicago. Construction of this architectural icon began in 1967 and after more than five million man hours, the 1,100 foot tall skyscraper was completed in 1969. Actually standing 1,500 feet tall when measured with its two antennas, the John Hancock Center is the fourth tallest building in Chicago, the seventh tallest building in the United States and the thirty-third tallest building in the world!
The 94th Floor
At 360 Chicago, no sights are left unseen. The dazzling Lake Michigan shoreline and unbeatable panoramic views of the whole city are continuous from beginning to end, and on a clear day, you are even able to see neighboring states to the North, East, South and West. This 94th floor attraction is more than 1,000 feet above the streets of Chicago’s famed Magnificent Mile. The spacious 17,000 square feet observation deck teams up with an open air skywalk to offer up to 80 miles of exploration. Guests will also have an interactive opportunity to learn about Chicago’s history at the touch of their fingertips in addition to view every angle imaginable, day and night, on high definition touch screens. 360 Chicago aims to deliver, and definitely succeeds at, a surrounding experience of the city’s scenery.
Café and Gift Shop
Your time on the 94th floor doesn’t end there. Be sure to visit 360 Chicago’s brand new modern café and bar, The Architect’s Corner, so you can tell all of your family and friends back home that you enjoyed coffee, gelato, artisanal snacks, or a cocktail 1,000 feet above the streets of Chicago.
