Generator was destroyed
The Smith Towers are located at 55,16 in the suburb of Millen Hills. This tall building has a mobile phone mast rising out from the roof and is a landmark in Millen Hills. When the building is powered, it enables mobile phone service to the suburb of Millen Hills. Tagging the building earns no XP. Not many items can be found in this building.
The building has 28 floors that houses abandoned offices. At the very roof of the structure is a Maltel mobile phone mast. A helipad is located at the 17th floor of the building. Accounting and Law firms occupied the 18th - 20th floor of the building. Maltel has an office at the 22nd and 27th floor.
Smith Towers is one of the remaining structure that survived the horrific bombing during World War II that lay Millen Hills in ruins. After the war, minor repairs and refitting were done to strengthen the structure.
Before the outbreak Smith Towers, which had 28 floors, was one of the few office leasing buildings in Millen Hills. It housed several accounting and law firms and other minor businesses. On the 17th floor of the building, a helipad was installed. The owner of the building hoped that by doing so would attract larger companies to lease in the building.
When the outbreak hit in 2005, office workers managed to evacuate the building before the infected reached the area. Some of the workers were evacuated via helicopters sent by the military during the first few hours of the evacuation. Until now you could see the remnants of the chaos that ensued in the building during the evacuation. Paperwork can be seen lying around the floors of the former accounting and law firms' offices located in the 18th, 19th and 20th floor of the building.
In the middle of 2014, a news and service organization was formed in Smith Towers that was named DWRX 28.54. It was made up of a couple of survivors that decided that survivors need to know what is happening in the area. They used the 3rd floor of the building as their main office.
During the zerg attacks occurring from February of 2015 until August of the same year, DWRX along with its affiliate in the area, 27.18, defended the building along with other resource buildings in the area.
During the siege, The Smith Towers was breached numerous times but the group managed to defend it and re-establish the barricade for the time being. But in June of 2015, Smith Towers finally fell to the hands of the zombies, along with the neighboring buildings. It stayed under the control of the zombies for a couple of weeks before DWRX managed to reclaim it with the help of several other survivors.
As of 2022, the remnants of DWRX can be seen on the third floor offices. The old radio transmitter has long been destroyed but the bulletin board with notes and news articles is left untouched on the wall. It is unknown what happened to the news crew of DWRX after the siege of 2015.
