Smith Tower to become condos?
Seattle PI, Iconic Smith Tower may become condos:
Ninety-three years after Pioneer Square’s Smith Tower was built as an elegant business address, its new owner hopes to turn the 38-story landmark into residential condominiums.
Chicago-based Walton Street Capital filed papers with the city Wednesday to begin what could be a months-long process of getting approval to redo the tower as housing.
Hopefully a conversion of the Smith Tower would add some life back to Pioneer Square at night.
