    Any idea of the pricing? It is rumored that the very top floor belongs to an eldery lady who lives there. I wonder what will happen to her home?

  2. SmithTowerEmployee says:

    The top floor (the pyramid part) is leased to a half crazy old lady who surrounds herself with dirty little dogs. Her wealthy father set up a trust arrangement with LC Smith to provide for her future. Sometimes she doesn’t leave her apartment for weeks at a time. Rumor in the building is that she unplugs the single elevator that goes up to her apartment at night because she’s afraid people are going to break in while she’s asleep.

    I thought it was a younger woman who lived in the penthouse….at least that’s what I recall from seeing an article about it.

    I am sure it is more interesting to beleive the crazy old lady and dogs theory, but here is the truth about “The Lighthouse” at the top of the Smith Tower:

    The top of the pyramid was converted to a beautiful condo to house Dale Chihuly’s former mistress. There is a fabulous DC chandelier in the center. It was featured in Seattle Homes & Lifestyles several years ago.

    I was at the Smith Tower yesterday witha a tour group. The woman who lives in the top of the tower is not old — looks like she is in her 40’s. She has lived there for 10 years. She has been married and had two children while living in the tower. The terms of the rental agreement are not public knowledge. The elevator goes to the 35 floor — Chinese Room/Observation deck — then the tenants walk to their apartment two floors up by stairs. She was in an article in Seattle Magazine with pictures of the beautifully decorated condo.
