Aon Center's new owner plans observatory
By Ryan Ori


The new owner of the Aon Center said it plans to add an observatory atop the 83-story office tower, a plan that would make Chicago just the second city in North America—and one of the few anywhere in the world—with three observatories.

^ cool!

it does make sense with the millions of tourists who walk right by their front door going to/from millennium park.

That would be awesome, I'd go for a visit. One more excuse to visit Chicago one of these days

Great news. I love this tower, and would relish the opportunity to go up to a viewing area some time.

Aon Center owners float plan for sky-high exterior elevator to new observation deck

The plan, which would be the most visible in a series of changes that seek to upgrade the 45-year-old skyscraper at 200 E. Randolph St., calls for placing the elevator tower outside the Aon Center’s northwest corner. There, the tower and double-deck elevators within would not be visible from Millennium Park or neighboring Maggie Daley Park, though they could be seen from North Michigan Avenue.

Well that would certainly be unique. I'd say it tops the Ledge or Tilt in 'coolness'.
