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!
This year’s Park(ing) Day event is an even more focused and ambitious design that builds off of the momentum created by last year’s installation. Here’s what you can expect.
