DOWNTOWN Houston is at the heart of this business community with a workforce of 140,000 and 11 of Houston’s 26 Fortune 500 companies. Powerhouses such as Chevron, Shell, Continental Airlines, JPMorgan Chase and TOTAL and creative minds such as PageSoutherlandPage and Morris Architects are just a few that call downtown and the Syline District home.

One of the largest skylines in the country, downtown is very proud of its world-renown architecture by I.M. Pei and Philip Johnson, a diverse mix of post-modern, art deco and Italian renaissance.
