Installation (must be terminated abnormally, but otherwise works)
What does not
As reported previously, sound must be disabled in order to run the game.
Attempting to save the game will result in a page fault and crash. :(
What was not tested
Anything above two stars.
There are various minor UI and graphical glitches: stairs will shift up and down by a pixel, the various suites will sometimes be "rotated" (in the sense of the bit operation), nested dialog boxes must be closed in the same order in which they were opened, and so on.

At present, do NOT attempt to play SimTower with sound support enabled.
It will crash or hang infinitely, depending on your Windows version setting. In either case, it's not playable.
Disable sound, either by editing SIMTOWER.INI or disabling your sound device in winecfg's audio tab.
This is true as of 1.1.13 and today's latest git (1-23-09).
