The Towers and Trees Downtown Tour explores the magnificent architecture between Hermann Square and Discovery Green as well as the changing dynamics of downtown. Guests will look at the partially realized civic center plan surrounding Hermann Square, the historic backbone of Main Street, the ambitious 1970 proposal that would become Houston Center, the internationally recognized icons from the skyscraper boom of the '70s and '80s, and Discovery Green, the newest catalyst for downtown development in Houston.

Meet on the northeast corner of the Smith and McKinney streets intersection, 901 Smith Street. Hobby Center Parking Garage and street parking are available in the area. Parking fees not included with registration.
