A Good Start to the Year

Did you know that Wortham Center turns 25 years old this year? Yep, we’re a quarter of a century old! It’s a pretty big deal, if you ask us. And we have more than a few fun things in store for our 25th year… but more on that later.

And there is no better way to kick off a birthday year than with an award nomination! No, I’m not talking about the Oscars. The Urban Land Institute of Houston has nominated Wortham Theater Center for a Development of Distinction Award in the heritage category.

The ULI Houston Development of Distinction Awards recognizes developments that best exemplify practices in design, construction, economic viability, marketing and management. Also nominated in the heritage category is the Harris County 1910 Courthouse.

The awards ceremony is tonight. While we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a win, we’re going to stick with a tried and true line: "It’s an honor just to be nominated." And it’s a pretty nice birthday gift, too.
