Spring 2017

Super Bowl LI was a complete touchdown for Houston and we’re proud of the impression we made on the rest of the country. Now we must look to the future and map out the next phase of downtown’s growth. In the spring 2017 issue of downtown Magazine, we take a deeper look at Plan Downtown – a 20-year vision plan that will outline recommendations for short, middle and long-range planning, development and design within and around downtown (page 12); the Avenida Houston project which transformed the space between Discovery Green and the George R. Brown Convention Center (page 23); and celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Art Car Parade – one of the city’s largest events, drawing fans from around the world (page 16). Don’t miss our Must List (page 3) with suggestions on the hottest new hangouts, the best St. Paddy’s Day celebrations and the perfect romantic outing!
