Los Angeles: Current tallest skyscraper on the west coast to get observation deck

The Los Angeles Times

U.S. Bank Tower, the tallest building in the West, will soon have an observation deck and sky-high restaurant catering to visitors to downtown Los Angeles.

The deck, the first of its kind in Southern California, will provide visitors with a sweeping view of Los Angeles, stretching from the hills of Glendale to Catalina Island.

The 72-story skyscraper, completed in 1989, will remain an office building, the owners said Tuesday, but it will get about $50 million worth of improvements, including a makeover of the lobby.

The top floor of U.S. Bank Tower is to remain offices for rent, but the 71st floor below it will become home to a restaurant.

The 69th and 70th floors are to be connected by a interior stairwell and made into an observation and meeting space. The 69th floor already has terraces that will be opened up to form outdoor viewing spaces. Visitors can see past Long Beach to Santa Catalina Island on a clear day.
