Big news in Chicago’s skyscraper world: The John Hancock Center is planning a tourist experience called the “Tilt” that would rival the Willis Tower’s Ledge. Visitors to the Hancock would be strapped inside an enclosed glass box protruding from the observatory, which then would tilt, creating downward-facing views of downtown.
