“Impressive, functional and green...”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Under downtown Houston there are approximately 7 miles of tunnels that link up a myriad of office buildings. These tunnels are a great way to beat the heat and experience a big city in a different way. The tunnels not only offer an alternative and safer way of traveling, but also offers various eateries and specialty shops. We saw many of the office workers utilizing the tunnels to commute between buildings to get lunch and get in their power walks. I think most major cities would benefit from this type of urban planning addition.

“Amazing Underground World”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Beneath the business district in downtown Houston is a labyrinth of tunnels linking all of the main areas, not purely as a means of getting from one to the other but as an almost subterranean city. There are cafes, restaurants shops and plazas offering workers from the buildings above an air cinditioned environment weather rain or shine, hot or cold, in which to move around and enjoy time away from the office.
