The NBA All Star Weekend brought media attention and a global audience to the east edge of Downtown Houston. The event prompted the Houston Chronicle editorial section to ask ULI for comment on the changes taking place. John Desmond, Vice President for Environment, Downtown Denver Partnership, and panel chair of the Technical Assistance Program panel ULI conducted for Central Houston, Inc. and Houston First Corporation, recapped the panel report and became the centerpiece of a forum featuring a variety of views on an area some are calling "The next Heights."
