The Centenarian of the Skyline


Once practically written off for dead as office space, the Smith Tower celebrated its 100th anniversary recently, mostly occupied and largely restored. (You can't keep a real star down, like John Travolta.) Tenants are interested again because the century-old building has features that are hard to find, even in other brick-and-beam buildings, CBRE first VP Cavan O’Keefe tells us: modern HVAC and operable windows, parking, and new retail. Snapped: crowds lining up to visit the observation deck during the anniversary celebration.
