For anyone who's ever wanted a bird's eye view of Los Angeles, the city's tallest skyscraper is about to get an observation deck.

U.S. Bank Tower, as part of a series of improvements, will also be getting a restaurant on the 71st floor of the tower, the Los Angeles Times reports. The deck will offer a view of the L.A. area that will stretch from Glendale to Catalina Island. 

Overseas Union Enterprise Ltd. bought the tower last year. The company predicts the new observation deck will draw 500,000 people per year, at $25 each.

The 69th and 70th floors will be connected by a stairwell to create the observation deck. Other planned changes as part of the $50 million project include a curb cut outside the tower's front door on 5th Street and upgrades to the U.S. Bank sign atop the tower.

The 72-story building, built in 1989, will remain an office building, the owners said.
