About Willis Tower

Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, is an 110-floor building in the heart of Chicago. For almost 25 years, it was known to be the tallest building in the world.

This remarkable building started life in 1969, with the Sears Roebuck and Company deciding that it needed a central office space for its 350,000 employees. 12,000 construction workers and enough concrete to build an eight-lane, 1.6-kilometre long highway later, the building was finished in 1970, becoming at the time one of the world’s largest office buildings. Sears Roebuck and Company moved out of the building in 1988, but the name remained the same until 2009 when the Willis Group Holdings took ownership. Renovations and new additions to the building include the stomach-tightening “The Ledge,” a progression of glass bays providing visitors with unobstructed views of the city from the building’s 103rd floor, 412 metres up.

The Willis Tower is located near the subway lines on the “L” and also within close proximity of the Union Station, Ogilvie Transportation Center and several bus lines. Tower Self Park provides car parking facilities located at 211 W. Adams, with an additional entrance on Franklin St directly across the street from the Willis Tower.

The four states of Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan can be seen from the top of the building, which weighs 222,500 tonnes and is large enough to encompass 101 American football fields. There are 40 kilometres of plumbing, 128 kilometres of lift cable, 2,414 kilometres of electric wiring, and 145,000 light fixtures within the building, which welcomes approximately 25,000 per day.
