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!
After opening Chocolatà Artisanal Chocolatier in 2017, Kathy D’Agostino has enjoyed watching the once quiet streets of downtown Birmingham come back to life. REV sat down with her to learn more about how she landed here, where she thinks the city is heading, and why Chocolata believes in Birmingham.
Join Young Pioneers of Birmingham, in support of REV Birmingham, on Thursday, June 6 for a discussion about the Importance of Place with the Alabama Futures Fund, hosted at downtown Birmingham’s brand new Harvest Market!
