Scenic Visionary

Scenic Visionary

Each year at Scenic Houston’s Annual Dinner Event, Scenic Houston recognizes a community leader who has played a vital role in improving Houston’s appearance and image.  The list of past recipients is a who’s who of Houstonians that have dramatically impacted our city.  This year we are excited to honor John R. Breeding,  President and CEO of Uptown Houston District.

2020 SCENIC VISIONARY

John R. Breeding

For more than 20 years Mr. Breeding, in his capacities as President and CEO of the Uptown Houston District and as Administrator of the Uptown Development Authority, has set the standards in creating the archetype for successful mixed use urban centers in the United States. With the vision and support of the Boards he serves, Mr. Breeding has led efforts in planning, funding, management and governance to turn Uptown Houston, 500 acres located in the heart of Houston, into one of the most economically viable, iconic destinations in the country.
