U.S. Bank Tower owner plans to build a rooftop observatory for tourists

Dubbed Skyspace L.A., the rooftop complex will be one of only a handful of such high-altitude visitor venues in the country. It will be operated by the firm that runs the observatory at the new One World Trade Center building in New York.

Admission will cost $25. A trip to the top of Willis Tower in Chicago costs $19.50 — or $45 for a "fast pass" to cut waiting time. At One World Trade Center in New York, a standard admission is $32, and "VIP expedited" entry costs $54.

U.S. Bank Tower is shorter than the tallest buildings in Chicago and Manhattan, but high enough to allow views into Glendale and the San Fernando Valley, as well as to Santa Catalina Island.

"I am sure that we are the only destination that will offer 360-degree views of L.A.," said Lucy Rumantir, chief operating officer of OUE in the Americas.
