We don't feel a day over 102... Smith Tower opened as the world's 4th tallest building on July 4, 1914. Thousands of people paid $.25 admission up to the Observatory to admire breathtaking views from Seattle's first skyscraper.

We love finding pieces of our history. This is Smith Tower somewhere between 1959-72. Photo courtesy of Washington State Digital Archives.

You know our name. You've seen us while driving by on I-5 or 99. Now step back in time and learn about that familiar building that's been a part of the Seattle skyline for over 100 years.
When Smith Tower reopens in August, visitors will have a chance to walk through a storied piece of the city's history. Here's a timeline of the rise, fall and rebirth of the Seattle landmark.

In the heart of Pioneer Square, Smith Tower has stood for 100 years as the Southern bookend to Seattle's skyscrapers. Once the tallest building on the West Coast, Smith Tower offers the original view of our grand city from the Observation Deck, normally open to tourists daily and available for private events. The Observation Deck is currently closed for renovation, with a reopening planned for Summer 2016. Smith Tower has also remained an office building since opening in 1914 and is home to companies of all sizes across a number of industries.

I had lunch recently at Diva Espresso in the Smith Tower. It was cozy and friendly. I will return.

Hello Georgia, thank you very much for your kind words. We will certainly pass along your feedback to the Diva Espresso team. We hope to see you on the observation deck or at our new speakeasy on the 35th floor after we re-open in August.

Let me just say first, my office is currently located in Smith Tower. The building has plenty of charm. And when I say charm, it's not a cover-up for it being old and decrepit. The building has maintained a lot of the historic elements. At the top of Smith Tower is the observation deck, which is a great place if you want to check out great views of all of Downtown Seattle.

HIGHLY OVERRATED! Sure, the view is good, but it's not great. The space is completely wasted - it's an empty room with a couple of old chairs and benches. It would be much better if you could get a coffee, soda, or drink and a snack, and sit at the top and enjoy yourself. Alas, there is none of this and it's pretty boring. I wouldn't spend the money. Check out the main lobby and the elevators, and you're good to go!

My fav view in the city and love the elevators! You get a panoramic view but it feels quaint and personal. Although I do agree they could do more with the room at the top where you purchase your ticket... who cares about the inside? The view is outside!

We rented this for a private event in the spring of 2013. It is a beautiful venue with a fantastic view of the city. It's got that "old Seattle" feel. The furniture is gorgeous and the ceiling stands out especially. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

The customer service there is the worst I've experience. I had an office there and was treated poorly. Eventually somethings changed but not much. The reception is bad, the office doors are thin, it is often cold and there are more things wrong with trying to run a business there than right.

Almost as high up as the Space Needle and much cheaper. Worth it.
