Located in the heart of Houston’s Uptown District, the Gerald D. Hines Water Wall Park is one of the city’s most iconic landmarks. Originally opened to the public in 1985, the Uptown Development Authority purchased the title to the Water Wall in 2009. The beloved fountain was renamed in honor of its creator and remains a public park, open to all citizens and visitors.
The Water Wall has been a major focal point of the Uptown district for nearly 25 years. As water cascades down the 64-foot-high magnificent inner and outer walls, its gentle roar can be heard throughout the park. Located south of the Williams Tower, the park has provided a place for people to gather and experience architectural beauty and the great outdoors.
The park is set on 2.77 acres and features 186 lush live oak trees. The seamless blend of sophistication, energy and grace makes this special place an inspiration to all who visit.
When it came time to finalize the deal on this astounding project, Stewart Title Company – Houston Commercial Division was the company of choice.
