Construction delayed on $185 million Aon Center observatory


Work on an observatory with a thrill ride atop Chicago’s third-tallest skyscraper Aon Center has been paused because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The $185-million project will start construction in 2021, a year behind schedule, according to a report by the Chicago Tribune.

601W Cos. and partner on the project Legends plan to begin work on the observatory in the second quarter of 2021, building general manager Matthew Amato told the publication.

Construction was set to begin this fall on the project, but now it is expected next year with expected completion in 2023.
