glass floor01 150x101 Highest Glass Floor of the World If you’re scared of heights, it may be time to look away now. Not content with having the tallest building in America , the owners of Sears Tower in Chicago have installed four glass box viewing platforms which stick out of the building 103 floors up.
The balconies are suspended 1,353 feet in the air and jut out four feet from the building’s Skydeck.

Designers say the platforms – collectively dubbed The Ledge – have been purposely designed to make visitors feel as they are floating above the city. The reward is unobstructed views of Chicago from the building’s west side and a heart-stopping vista of the street and Chicago River below – for those brave enough to look straight down.

    Yeah, CN tower’s glass floor is much higher and freakier since you’re just walking and all of a sudden its a glass floor!

  10. Hey Bob Jones... says:

    The glass floor at the Sears Tower is 1353 ft off the ground, while the CN tower’s glass floor is 1122. That would make the article correct and your comment a FAIL.

  11. Foot stomp says:

    I wanna go there and stomp my foot really hard…

    Then jump out of the way just in time!!

  12. Lahm says:

    Wow, the flooring is so strong! Hope I can visit the plance someday.

  13. chris says:

    um, sry? but the skywalk above the colorado rive, in grand canyon are like 4,770 ft ..

  14. Omegalegato says:

    Actually, since this is ABOVE the grand canyon, this is still much higher. It may be 4,770ft from skywalk to the bottom, but taken in that context, put side by side the sear tower height would be 6,023ft (since the tower is built on level ground. and the grand canyons just a big divot).

  15. Ol' Deej says:

    The CN tower’s glass floor is the 113th. And I can speak from experience, the extra ten floors are noticeable.
