A city’s towers can define its place in the world, producing a skyline that reveals a city’s identity almost instantly. But today the community rarely has to access those towers and the bird’s eye views they provide. Observation decks have closed or limited access to tenants only due to increasing security concerns.

ArCH’s Soar to High Heights tour series invites the community to explore the history of our local skyscrapers, their architecture and of course access to the top. We will explore iconic and recently completed skyscrapers in Houston’s skyline.
