360 Chicago observation deck, located 1000 feet above the famed Magnificent Mile in the iconic John Hancock Center, offers 360 degrees breathtaking views of city skyline and Lake Michigan.
On the 96th floor is a lounge where guests can sip a cocktail or beverage while enjoying the view.

The structural system (a braced tube) was made possible by new and emerging computer analysis techniques. The tapered shape allows for smaller residential plates over office plates over commercial plates and opens up a wider environment at the plaza.The observation deck is unusual in that part of it has a screen window instead of the standard plate glass. The base of the building has dimensions of 80.77 by 50.29 meters (north-south by east-west). The building narrows towards the top at 32 by 19.8 meters.
