ULI award-winning Midtown Park to be the first SITES-certified project in Houston

Join Alex Ramirez, PLA, ASLA and Sarah Delcambre, PLA, ASLA (Design Workshop) for a tour of the award-winning Midtown Park on Wednesday at 6pm. Space is limited and registration is required. 

Midtown Park fulfills a 20-year vision established by the Midtown Redevelopment Authority (MRA) to create a premier park destination in the Midtown District of Houston, Texas. After extensive planning and land acquisition, the MRA and a developer partnered to transform this underutilized land into a vibrant, urban park and multi-family development. Midtown Park improves access to green space while creating park programming and recreational opportunities within a park that is defined by innovative stormwater management. Slated to be the first SITES-certified project in Houston, Midtown Park is a marker of sustainability that provides vital park space to the neighborhood and its surrounding communities.
