SKY VIEW OBSERVATORY
Petit Futé's opinion on SKY VIEW OBSERVATORY
This building, which rises to more than 284 metres in height, is home to the Bank of America. Because of its black colour, it is known as the "Darth Vader" tower. It is the highest skyscraper in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest region. Created by architect Martin Selig in 1985, this steel monster has more than 8,800 windows and 48 elevators. The 73rd floor observation room offers a breathtaking 360° view of Seattle and Elliott Bay, Mount Rainier, Bellevue, the Cascade Mountain Range, the Olympic Mountains, and Mount Baker. The view of Downtown is closer than that of the Space Needle and higher than Smith Tower. There is a café renovated in 2018 and for the originals, yoga classes are given at sunrise! Online booking required for this option.
