Researching the Roadside: travel & tourism in the Pacific Northwest
TITLE: Conceptual Drawing of 550 foot Space Tower
DESCRIPTION: Typed on back of drawing
A 550-foot "Space Tower" observation tower topped by a revolving restaurant is planned as one of the feature attractions of Century 21 Exposition in Seattle in 1962. The $2,500,000 structure will be located on the highest ground of the 74-acre Exposition site. Two high-speed passenger elevators, walled in clear plastic, will carry visitors to the top, or to the intermediate platforms at the 100- and 200- foot levels.
The observation platform and 220-seat restaurant, which will make a complete rotation each hour, will afford a panoramic view of the lakes, mountains and salt water surrounding Seattle. The tower was designed by John Graham & Co., Architects-Engineers, Seattle and New York and is planned as a permanent tourist attraction.
