This time next year you will be able to go to the top of the U.S.Bank Tower and catch the views.

I was there for fourth of july to see the fireworks.

it's a polished concert floor and an unfinished ceiling. They brought in a rolling cart ice cream case, a bar, a DJ, and a couple card tables with snacks.

One mens/ladies bathroom seemed kind low capacity to make it a high-volume venue.

If they design an outside promenade, where peds can stroll with the wind in their face, and you can lean over and look straight down, ala the ESB in NYC, this will be cool. But if the "observation deck" is INSIDE, and you're looking straight out through six inch thick dirty plexiglass, that will suck.

I've done both indoor & outdoor observation deck viewing in my lifetime & they both have their strong points but yes, it's more of an exhilarating feeling to be outside in the elements.
Public access to open & functioning viewing decks really plunged in the last 50 years so I'd love to see sort of a rebirth of deck viewing opportunities at skyscraper sites. This set of USB & Wilshire Grand viewing plans is good news.

Awesome.

Harrier has often passed the "Library Tower" while strolling 5th Street and wondered if he could go inside and to the top.

Now he has an answer.

One of Harrier's objectives is to complete the "Run to the Top" stair climb at Library (U.S. Bank) Tower.
