ULI YLG Midlands Historic Redevelopment Walking Tour
We will begin our tour at the Columbia Museum of Art, where we’ll hear a brief explanation of the renovations going on both inside and out of the Museum. From there we will walk to the historically redeveloped Hennessey’s Building, at which the architect and owner Scott Garvin will provide us with a low down on his efforts of the renovation. We’ll finish up at Lula Drake, where we’ll explore their renovations before enjoying a happy hour.
