Woolworth on 5th Featured in New York Times
Tuck-Hinton's Woolworth's on 5th project was one of several historic civil rights landmarks recently featured in a New York Times article about the creation of a new US Civil Rights Trail. The former Woolworth's department store is currently under construction and will open in 2018 as a restaurant and live music venue. The renovation will pay homage to the site's civil rights history, which includes iconic lunch counter sit-ins that occurred on site in the 1960s.
Recently, Tuck-Hinton staff had the opportunity to observe construction progress. Notable features include original terrazzo floors and metal railings, a reconstructed lunch counter, and a previously concealed first floor mezzanine that was uncovered and restored during construction.
