@Sebatiger

from wikipedia...

Smith Tower is an example of neoclassical
architecture. Its outer skin is granite on the first and second floors,
and terracotta on the rest. The exterior has been washed only once, in
1976, because it remains remarkably clean without regular washing.

The building is one of the last on the West Coast to have live elevator operators. The Otis Elevator Company
provided the elevators, which have brass surfaces. The doors are
latticed, so a rider can see into each hallway and through the glass
walls in front of each office.

The Chinese Room is on the 35th floor, which also has a wraparound public observation deck. The furniture and the hand-carved ceiling were gifts from the Empress of China.
They include the famous Wishing Chair. It is said that a single woman
who sits in the chair will marry within a year. The legend came true for
Smith's daughter, who married in the Chinese Room itself.


After the restoration in the early 1990s, workers removed the
10,000-gallon water tank in the top of the tower. The resulting space
along with a former maintenance man's apartment became a three-story
penthouse, the only residence in the building. It is currently occupied
by artist/investor Petra Franklin, husband David Lahaie, and their two
daughters.

The tower includes a fallout shelter that can be seen from the entrance hall.

The building is crowned by an 8-foot-wide (2.4 m) glass dome
illuminated by blue light, except during December when it is changed to
green.
