Glass platforms proposed for Seattle Space Needle

    The Space Needle rises above the walls and ceiling of the "Glasshouse," featuring a 100-foot suspended, 1,340-piece sculpture, during a preview of the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit at the Seattle Center, Thursday, May 17, 2012, in Seattle. The new, permanent 1.5 acre exhibit is located near the base of the Space Needle and opens to the public Monday, May 21. It looks at the career of artist Dale Chihuly and features an eight-gallery exhibition hall, conservatory and garden as well as a cafe with a selection of Chihuly's collections of vintage accordions, radios, clocks and other mid-century memorabilia.

SEATTLE >> The Seattle Space Needle wants to add three viewing platforms extending out from the observation deck.

They would have glass walls and a glass floor so people could look straight down.

The Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce reports the Landmarks Preservation Board is expected to decide next week whether to give its approval.

About 1.5 million people visit the Space Needle each year.
