New residents continue to move to Chicago because of the amazing Chicago real estate inventory, a lively job market and the great food, of course! In addition, Chicago has a variety of attractions that locals and tourists love visiting. One of the most popular attractions is TILT, which is located in the iconic John Hancock Center.
The Center was completed in 1970 by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and construction was financed by John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Company. The building is 96 stories tall, and is the fourth largest building in Chicago. TILT was formerly known as the John Hancock Observatory when it opened in 1969, and has welcomed tens of thousands of visitors willing to brave the heights to see one of the best views that Chicago has to offer.
In 2012, Montparnasse 56 Group, a Paris-based company that specializes in the operation and development of tourist’s sites, purchased the Observatory. TILT offers a stunning view of Chicago, allowing visitors to look out over the city and its historic lakefront. TILT operates in conjunction with 360 Chicago, which overlooks the Magnificent Mile, Lake Michigan and the city’s majestic skyline from 1,000 feet in the air. Located on the 94th floor, visitors can also enjoy The Architect’s Corner Café and Bar which also offers a view of the city from its many windows.
TILT is located on the Magnificent Mile in the John Hancock Center at 875 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60611. Deals and Packages are available as well as online ticket sales. For more information on TILT, visit
