Spring 2021

We say it a lot—we believe in the future of Downtown. We say it because we know our future is bright. We, all of us, are the heart of this city, and neither a pandemic nor an ice storm is going to stop our progress.

It hasn’t been easy, but Houstonians are resilient and so is Downtown. Certainly we’ve all changed how we live, work and play over the past year. We limit our social groups. We don our masks, shop curbside, and work virtually. Now thanks to those efforts and with the administration of more vaccines, we are finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Downtown is ready for your return.

We’re especially pleased to report on the robust pace of development in our city’s center. Despite many challenges, office construction and redevelopment projects have accelerated, planned residential projects are in development and nearly 1,400 new units will be added to the growing residential market. You can read what’s new starting on page 13.

We also want to help you rediscover all that Downtown has to offer. Make time to roller skate at Discovery Green, catch a movie at Market Square Park, or imbibe in delicious bites and craft cocktails from your favorite bistro’s breezy patio. Head back to the Theater District, where some organizations are performing live again. Root for your favorite team—some venues have started to open (with limited seating of course). We’ve laid it all out for you with our feature starting on page 22.

Our datebook is back on page 48 but we encourage you to always check the status of events before heading out. And our listing of restaurants is ready for your perusal starting on page 40. We can’t wait to see you back in action! And thank you for reading downtown!
