Bank Receives President’s Award from the Texas Downtown Association
FORT WORTH, Texas -- October 24, 2007 -- Tarrant County-based Worthington National Bank won the 2007 Texas Downtown Association President's Award for Best Restoration. The announcement was made at a gala event last week, where the award was presented to Greg Morse, Worthington National Bank CEO.
Selected from a pool of projects across the state of Texas, Worthington National Bank was honored for its complete interior restoration of its downtown Fort Worth location, the historic Burk Burnett Building in Sundance Square.
Built in 1914, the Burk Burnett Building was Fort Worth's first true skyscraper and originally housed a bank. Nearly a hundred years later, Worthington National Bank has restored the location with unparalleled attention to historical accuracy and detail to the banking days of the old west.
Worthington National Bank has received two other awards for this project, the Texas Historical Foundation Judge James Wheat Award and the Texas Bankers Foundation Cornerstone Award.
The Texas Downtown Association (TDA) is a statewide non-profit organization with 400 members involved in downtown revitalization projects. By fostering development and revitalization, TDA strives to enhance the economic vitality of Texas downtowns and neighborhood commercial districts by providing resources, networking opportunities, education and advocacy.
