Working Downtown at Houston’s Hilton Americas

HOUSTON HILTON AMERICAS by cartoonityvuehoustonWas thankful for PSAV Presentation Services work at the Hilton Americas setting up A/V & projection for a large convention last week. It was another beautiful clear dry Houston spring day.

The Hilton is located at 1600 Lamar Street, right next to downtown’s Discovery Green park and the George R. Brown Convention Center.  It’s just a stones throw from the Toyota Center [NBA Rockets Home] and Minute Maid Park [MLB Astros Home]. And just across the freeway is BBVA Compass Stadium [MLS Dynamo Home]. It’s all right in the midst of the revitalized convention district of Houston.

So, Get outside and enjoy these days before the heat and humidity soon come !

Clouds & sky reflections along Eldridge Parkway in west HoustonReflections in Glass on Eldridge Parkway.b.ct.566x487from Wikipedia:

The west side of Houston is known as The Energy Corridor located along Interstate 10 (the Katy Freeway) The area is defined by many energy industry-related companies, such as BP America, Citgo, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil and Shell Oil Company.

Over 26,000 acres of urban park area, the largest outside the National Park System, borders The Energy Corridor. Two parks adjacent to the district include George Bush Park and Bear Creek Pioneers Park

The Energy Corridor contains over 20 million square feet of office space. As of 2012, The Energy Corridor District is the third largest employment center in the region with more than 78,000 employees and consisting of more than 300 international, national and local companies. Many companies use The Energy Corridor District as corporate or regional headquarters including BP America, Citgo, ConocoPhillips, Dow Chemical, ExxonMobil Chemical, Foster Wheeler USA Corporation, Mustang Engineering, Shell Oil Company Exploration and Production, Technip USA and WorleyParsons.

Work Begins on Memorial Park Master Plan

Work begins on Memorial Park Conservancy’s  $200 million Transformational Master Plan at  Houston’s 1,466 acre Memorial Park. The park is almost twice the size of Central Park in New York City.

The Memorial Park Conservancy recently announced that work on the plan will begin in November 2015. The first stage of development is a 113-acre area located north of Memorial Drive that will be called the Eastern Glades. Plans include shifting East Memorial Loop Drive eastward, back towards Downtown Houston, in order to connect a surrounding 83-acres that are currently divided…then this park space between the Crestwood subdivision and Memorial Park Golf Course will become a “passive recreation area” surrounded by a restored savannah and pine-hardwood forest.

Houston-MemorialPark-Trees-ctThe partners in the park project are the Memorial Park Conservancy, the Houston Parks and Recreation Department and the Uptown Houston TIRZ. The Master Plan could take 20 years to complete, assuming funding becomes available for all of the projects.

Over the Bayou & through Downtown on I-45 South

Interstate I-45 and Buffalo Bayou run through the westside of Downtown Houston.

Houston-Downtown-westside-I45-BuffaloBayou-b.t.ct885x670The “Buffalo Bayou Torches” on I-45 south are 30-foot-tall stainless steel torches that mark the edges of the Bayou as Interstate 45 crosses the waterway. The Bayou runs through the heart of Houston and is home for the Buffalo Bayou Promenade.

The Buffalo Bayou Promenade Park designed by SWA Group for the Buffalo Bayou Partnership solves flooding problems, improves ecological structure and function, and provides Houstonians with access to the urban waterfront.
