Houston philanthropist to fund Jones Plaza remake
By Hannah Dellinger October 7, 2019

The transformation of long-dormant Jones Plaza — an empty block of concrete platforms in the Theater District once likened to a public restroom — will be complete within two years thanks to a $10 million donation from one of Houston’s most powerful supporters of the arts.

Mayor Sylvester Turner on Monday announced that Jones Plaza will become the Lynn Wyatt Square for the Performing Arts by 2021. Wyatt, the famed socialite and philanthropist who has supported the arts in Houston for decades, made the contribution to a $29 million revitalization project.
