Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) held the title of tallest building in the world for 25 years. It now stands as the third tallest building in the US after One World Trade Centre and Central Park Tower. Designed by architect Fazlur Rahman Khan this distinctive building stands 110 storeys and 1,450 feet high. Visitors to the observation deck on floor 103 (the highest in the US at 1,353 feet) can test their bravery by standing in one of the glass boxes that jut out from the building! I did and it’s great fun.
Fun facts : Willis Tower is also famously featured in a number of well-known movies including Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, I Robot, Transformers, Man of Steel, Divergent, Jupiter Ascending and Rampage. In 2008’s The Dark Knight Christian Bale stood at the top of the building for a scene where Batman is listening out for the Joker.
