The King County John D. Spellman Award for Historic Preservation
Monica and Dave Brethauer, owners of the Cortona Building, were awarded the 2016 John D. Spellman Award for Historic Preservation for Rehabilitation of the F.W. Woolworth Department store. Originally built in 1954, the Brethauers purchased the building in 2015 and completed a $1.1 million project to restore its mid-century modern features and serve as an anchor in Renton's retail core.
King County Executive Dow Constantine presented the award in November 2016.
