The future Riu Plaza Chicago will have a breathtaking rooftop terrace

  • The new hotel will offer guests unbeatable views of the big city from its sky bar on floor 26. It will also have a spectacular glass balcony that hangs 88 metres above the ground

Construction work is well underway on the 28-floor building that will house the future hotel Riu Plaza Chicago, with several floors already standing above ground. The details of the hotel chain’s new major project in the United States are starting to come to light. One of the most eye-catching features is the future sky bar on floor 26, where guests will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the city. As seen in the recently presented images, the terrace will also have a head-spinning focal point: a glass balcony hanging 88 metres above the ground. The bravest visitors will be able to enjoy views of the heart of the city from this transparent balcony, which will allow them to see everything going on beneath their feet.
