The property’s signature attraction is the 1,149 foot Stratosphere Tower with a 13-story, 116,000 SF “pod” mounted atop an 800 foot-tall concrete shaft; tallest building west of the Mississippi. Wright Engineers’ CEO Brent Wright was the tower’s lead structural engineer while principal in a previous firm. Since then, Wright has been called upon to provide structural engineering services for a variety of renovations and additions to the tower and adjacent hotel and casino.
