Take note that this historic building was built in 1914 and is the oldest skyscraper in the city. It was the tallest building west of the Mississippi until 1931 and remained the tallest building on the West Coast until the Space Needle was built in 1962. The views from the observation deck are great of course and you can see the Space Needle all the way at the end of an avenue which makes for a great photo. Well worth visiting. As an interesting fact, after the restoration in the early 1990s, workers removed the 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.
