Phoenix Observation Tower, United States

From series “Elegant Architectural Structures for Fans of Skywalks”
Height: 430 feet.

Construction of the unique observation tower has begun in the US city of Phoenix. The structure is also bound to attract the attention of curious travelers. The height of the tower after construction will be 430 feet. A large spherical structure with several viewing platforms and seating areas would be set on the top. The project of the tower was designed by well-known architects from Denmark. They plan to equip the structure not only with viewing platforms, but also with a restaurant and a terrace where guests can sunbathe.

The unusual tower is green. It's planned to add the latest technological devices that allow to process solar energy and rainwater. It was decided to build a tower in the heart of the city, in close proximity to various cultural and business centers. A massive concrete core will be a foundation of the construction. At the top there will be an unusual spiral sphere.

It's planned to use the tower as an exhibition center. Some of its space will be covered and available for use all year round. As organizers of the project say, the tower will be so large that it can be seen even from space. Height-lovers will be attracted by the chance to enjoy panoramic city views. They could add some options to their favorite entertainment - for example, visit an art exhibition or have a dinner in a restaurant. Next - Daewon Park Observatory
