Skyspace Los Angeles

In large cities with skylines full of skyscrapers, it is quite common to find observatories that allow you to admire the view from above. New York City, for example, offers tourists the opportunity to visit several scenic skyscrapers (the Empire State Building, the Top of the Rock, and the Freedom Tower). Los Angeles did not want to be an exception, so it built its own observation tower downtown that is about 985 ft high and offers a 360-degree view over the entire city. Its name is OUE Skyspace and it has a unique feature that distinguishes it from other skyscrapers and can be especially interesting for those looking for an unusual experience. Let’s see what it is. OUE Skyspace is located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, in front of the Los Angeles Central Library and near Bunker Hill Steps, the staircase leading to the Bunker Hill area. If you arrive by car, you can park directly in the underground parking lot of the complex, or if you want to spend a little less, you can have a look at my advice on where to park in Los Angeles. Instead, if you plan to take the metro, you can choose one of 2 useful stops:

As a blogger, I was invited to the opening of OUE Skyspace LA to experience the 360° observation deck and the arrival of the Skyslide on June 25. When we arrived, there were security personnel everywhere and we went through a security check. You feel completely safe. Ushers will greet you before you enter the elevator and guide you to where to go next. There are a variety of interactive visitor touch points on floors 2, 54, 69 and 70 of the US Bank Tower. Before you reach your destination (Skyslide and Observation Deck), you will witness a descriptional LA culture through murals on the wall. In addition, highlights include a dynamic technology – an infinity mirror that has neon colors that float in the dark creating an illusion that appears 10,000 miles deep; a silhouette wall which uses pixels to produce reflective images based on your body motion. This fascinating technology was specifically designed to make your experience memorable. Going back to Skyslide, it is a first-of-its-kind outdoor glass slide affixed to the exterior of the US Bank Tower. The glass structure was made entirely of clear glass and was airlifted via helicopter onto the 69th floor. It is 1 1/4 inches thick, extending 45 feet long, from the 70th floor to the 69th floor. OUE Skyspace LA is the proud home to California’s tallest open-air observation deck, boasting an unmatched 2,800 square feet of outdoor space. The US Bank Building is the tallest building west of the Mississippi River, 11th tallest in North America and 65th tallest in the World. (Source: www.linkedin.com)
