SA Landmarks Make Preservation List

Two San Antonio landmark buildings make it onto Preservation Texas’ 2016 Most Endangered Places List.

“The Woolworth Building on Alamo Plaza and the John Wood Courthouse on Cesar Chavez,” the Conservation Society’s Executive Director Bruce MacDougal said.

“It means that the preservation community is aware that these buildings have an uncertain future.”

The Woolworth Building was purchased by the Texas General Land Office and might soon be used in an Alamo Plaza revision. The federal courthouse may not be a courthouse into the future, as local delegates push to get federal dollars for a new courthouse here.

“This is to promote awareness of these buildings, as well as, get the community thinking about how they can be reused into the future, to be productive, and to be here many, many more years,” MacDougal said.
