The historic Woolworth Building was completed in 1912. Built at a cost of $13.5 million, Frank W. Woolworth financed his building in cash. It is one of the oldest steel-frame skyscrapers in New York, and when completed the building was the tallest building in the world. Now, the grand dame is getting a renovation from her concrete to her pool.
Originally designed to reflect a Pompeian pool, it is the second oldest pool in New York. It will be a stunning renovation with Basecrete providing the strength beneath the beauty. It's an exciting process to have the unused pool, drained and closed in 1999, brought back to life.
