The George R. Brown Convention Center

Houston, Texas

The 2025 Master Plan illustrates a best-case scenario for the public/private development of downtown Houston’s convention district, a 60-city block area surrounding the George R. Brown Convention Center. The plan envisions a vibrant, economically sustainable district of residential, hotel, office, retail, dining and entertainment development, capitalizing on the future east-west transit lines of the Metro light rail and existing public spaces such as Discovery Green. The final plan, completed in December 2011, included recommendations for a district-wide strategy addressing land acquisition/parcel assemblage, public policy changes and investment incentives, public/private partnerships, infrastructure improvements and phased development strategies.
