(KPLR) – The John Hancock center in Chicago is planning a new view for tourists called ‘The Tilt.’ The proposed plan would rival ‘The Ledge’, the popular glass-floor balconies at the Willis Tower.

The company which bought the 94th-floor John Hancock observatory in 2012 wants to create an enclosed glass box that protrudes and could hold several visitors.

Once the visitors are strapped in, the box would tilt, creating downward-facing views of the city.
