Congratulations and thank you to Merrill Stewart, his team at Stewart Perry Construction and the entire TJ Tower redevelopment team for continuing to go the extra mile to restore the iconic dirigible mooring mast on the roof of this elegant former luxury hotel-turned-apartment tower. They’ve continued making additions… the structure now lights up in changing colors! Considered the future of travel when the Thomas Jefferson Hotel opened in 1929, dirigibles never gained widespread popularity, but the architecture of this structure has captured the hearts and minds of Birmingham ever since.
Next time you’re close to downtown after dark, look to the sky above the TJ Tower and enjoy the light show. Thank you, Merrill!
We’ve talked about sports, but downtown has so much more to offer! Downtown Birmingham has so many experiences in store for you, which can also turn into life-long memories. And lucky for you, we’ve created a tool to make all that exploring so much easier!
We are approaching the finish line for the 20th Street Refresh, which calls for a celebration – and you’re invited! The City Center Business Improvement District (BID), funded by downtown property owners, is partnering with the City of Birmingham and REV Birmingham to celebrate a refreshed Birmingham Green. Come join the party on May 20th from 4 to 8 p.m (with a special celebration happening at 6 p.m.)!
If you’ve been paying close attention, you may have noticed that we’ve been hinting at a new Linn Park project coming soon – and we’re finally ready to share it with you! A planning process to redesign and reactivate Linn Park kicked off recently when public and private organizational partners met on site with the nationally acclaimed park designers OJB Landscape Architecture (OJB) to begin an eight-month master plan development process to improve Linn Park.
