The tricked out observation deck at the U.S. Bank Tower—the tallest building west of the Mississippi—last year has a really cool “Skyslide.”
On Saturday, installation of this “Skyslide” began via helicopter, and it wasn’t exactly a smooth ride.
John Colosimo, president of Steel City Glass, Inc., the company that constructed the skyslide, said that safety was, of course a priority. He said:
Before we brought that thing out here, we loaded it with 10,000 pounds of sand and hung it for an hour. It’s pretty robust. I don’t see it coming apart.
The “OUE Skyspace” is set to open June 25.
