It’s normal to feel starstruck in Los Angeles, but … sky struck? That’s the idea behind the Skyslide, a glass-enclosed ramp that will sit roughly 1,000 ft. above city streets. Designed by M. Ludvik & Co., the 45-ft.-long attraction–made of 1.25-in.-thick glass that can withstand earthquakes and high winds–will jut out of the U.S. Bank Tower, taking riders from the 70th floor to the outdoor observation deck on the 69th floor. The biggest perk: “No chain fences in your selfies,” says John Gamboa, who’s working on the project. It’s expected to open June 25.
