Space Needle to Launch Historic Renovation Project

Floor-to-ceiling glass will reveal new views and offer visitors a fresh look at Seattle’s iconic tower

The Space Needle, one of the most recognized landmarks in the world, has announced the Century Project, a multi-year venture focused on preservation and renovation of the 55-year-old icon. The renovation will update the structure’s physical systems and elevate the visitor experience by dramatically enhancing the view. Privately funded, the ambitious project will heighten the Observation Deck experience with floor-to-ceiling glass on the interior and exterior to further open up the uninhibited 360° views of the Puget Sound. The restaurant level will be reimagined with a first-of-its-kind rotating glass floor revealing downward views of the structure never seen before.
