Do Business Better

Downtown Houston is where business thrive; our environment features operational efficiency and affordability supported by a highly-educated, diverse workforce & extensive business networks.

Economic Development

Over the past two decades, Downtown has experienced a major resurgence. More than $9 billion has been invested in new parks and public spaces, as the neighborhood has welcomed new hotels, new multi-family residential developments, new and renovated office towers, renovations and expansions to convention and theater facilities and continued investments in infrastructure and transit. This revolutionary period of growth has made Downtown an even better place to live, work and play.
