Behind the Scenes: Meet Project Consultant Guy Hagstette

Due to the magnitude of the Buffalo Bayou Park Shepherd to Sabine Project, skilled management is essential. Leading this effort is Guy Hagstette, immediate past president of downtown Houston’s Discovery Green park, with consultant SWA Group. Guy has a long history of involvement with Buffalo Bayou, dating back to the mid-1980’s when he and a team of architects won a national competition to design downtown’s Sesquicentennial Park. For the past 25 years, he has been at the forefront of major urban design initiatives in Houston while serving as Director of Planning and Development for the Houston Downtown Management District and as a Special Assistant for Urban Design to Mayor Bill White. All of us at Buffalo Bayou Partnership are honored to have Guy as part of our team.
