|Mount Safeco is a skyscraper complex completed in 1975 in the University District of Seattle, Washington. The 99 m (325 ft), 22-story tower, designed by NBBJ, is Seattle’s tallest building outside of the Downtown Seattle area.|
The building remains the tallest building in the area surrounding the University.
The uppermost levels are comprised of a complex network of rain catches, gardens, and recycling centers.
The highest level below the gardens belongs to Ms. Stockton.
The plaza level is inhabited by the Have Rats, the gang loyal to Mt. Safeco and Ms. Stockton.
The first level houses the Bartertown market commons, a bustling marketplace open to anyone willing to make a fair deal.
Several levels up is The Supper Club, run by Silver.
