Sydney Tower is the tallest building in the city. It is not an overstatement to say that it can be seen from any area, and it became a symbol of Sydney. Despite its name, Sydney Tower has nothing to do with television. It was initially designed for Telecom, owned by the AMP Corporation and was called "AMP Tower". In late 2001, the tower passed into the possession of the company Westfield Group and became known as Sydney Tower. The height of the tower is 305 meters. Sydney Tower has two viewing platforms at the height of 250 and 268 meters, 3 high speed elevators, rotating restaurant and a cinema. The erection of Sydney Tower began in 1975; and the project had been developed five years earlier by the architect Donald Сron. The tower was put in commission in 1981. In General, the implementation of this project took 36 billion AU$. During holidays, the tower sparkles with colored lights. It is often used to display the fireworks. The first observation deck allows you to see Sydney in all its splendor. It offers a magnificent full circle view. Here is a display with information on speed and direction of wind, atmospheric pressure. The second observation deck is open. It is situated just 18 meters higher. It differs from the first one by a glass, completely transparent floor; so, not everyone dares to go there. It is visited in the framework of the excursion program. You can go upstairs on the elevator or mount the stairs (1054 steps). The ticket purchase allows you to be there for an hour to admire the panorama of Sydney and get an incredible experience. The Sydney Tower restaurant with the capacity of 220 people receives more than 185 thousand guests per year. This attraction will be of interest not only to tourists, but to Australians as well.
