We were looking forward to a magnificant lunch at the Signature Restaurant at the top of the Hancock Building. However, we enjoyed the spectacular views from the Hancock Observatory instead. The audio tape gave a good background of what we were looking at.

The 100 - story building, completed in 1969, has a remarkable design, with the huge X-braces serving both a structural and visual purpose.
