Sears/Willis Tower gets glass observation deck, still shorter than CN tower.

Update: The Sears Tower is now called the Willis Tower as of July 16th, 2009. Of course it’s a goofy name, it’s new.

Not to be a rabble rouser (one that stirs up the masses of the people)…

But the Sears Tower has a new glass observation deck, generically named The Ledge, which looks scary and awesome.

Similar to the Grand Canyon Skywalk (except it’s easily accessible and doesn’t require driving for 6 hours to the middle of nowhere).

The CN Tower in Toronto has had something similar for quite awhile. I just happened to be in Toronto and paid it a visit. It was awesome and scary too. I’ll admit, the Sears tower one looks scarier, but it’s still not as tall as the CN tower 🙂

Now if they build something like this in the Burj Dubai (official tallest building in the world)… I’m all over it 🙂
