The Acre: a walk in the park The Acre: a walk in the park https://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=180112017-10-10T05:00:00Z2017-10-10T23:00:00Z

​​​​Renderings of The Acre ParkHOUSTON – The Acre, the signature piece of Brookfield's $48.5 million renovation of One Allen Center on the west side of downtown along Dallas St. has opened. 

The park contains a wide-open plaza and a linear lawn that will seat up to 1,500 people for special events such as concerts.

The park also features 171 new trees, including pistachios, elms and overcup oaks. 

An acre of "green infrastructure" can make a positive impact: trees enhance air quality and reduce heat islands, also improving storm-water absorption during natural disasters.
