The F. W. Woolworth building and several other major buildings built in 1926, were the precursors of the most dramatic commercial building boom to ever occur in downtown Fort Worth. This Art Deco, low-rise commercial style building with classical detailing, was designed by Wiley G. Clarkson, a well known regional architect of the 1920's through the 1940's, and was constructed by James T. Taylor, a well known local contractor and owner of the first Portland cement factory in Dallas. This 38,000 square foot building is located at the center of the historic "retail intersection" of downtown, in Sundance Square.
