CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The owners of the John Hancock Center 94th floor observatory are reportedly in building discussions for a leaning balcony called the "Tilt."

Crain's Business says the plans are to create a glass box that protrudes from the side of the building and tilts downwards after thrill-seekers are secured inside.

If rumors are true, the "Tilt" would rival the Willis Tower's glass Skydeck, which gives tourists a daring look over the city from 103 stories high.

This would be a positive thing for the John Hancock Center, who Crain's Business says has been losing visitors to the Willis Tower Skydeck.
