Welcome to Skydeck Chicago’s online media center. At 1,353 feet above the city, Skydeck Chicago offers stunning views of up to 50 miles and four states. The Skydeck is also home to The Ledge, a series of glass boxes that extend out 4.3 feet from the tower’s west side on the 103rd floor, providing never-before-seen unobstructed views of the city – straight down! Whether it is daring to stand out on The Ledge or learning about the Windy City, visitors get a ‘one-stop Chicago’ experience during their Skydeck visit. This site provides all of the information you need to write the perfect Skydeck story, including images and fact sheets, links to Skydeck’s social media channels and details on how to schedule a media tour.
