When we talk about Downtown, we talk A LOT about its livability and just what it means for the future of Houston. More and more people are choosing a Downtown lifestyle. In fact, the number of residents has more than tripled over the past decade, and that number will continue to grow. It’s critical that we keep pace with the demands of these residents—and potential residents. So if you’re thinking that settling in our neighborhood might be right for you, our feature starting on page 12 is a great place to start. And the feature on page 7 takes an even deeper dive into what’s driving the evolution into a more livable city center. More than 30 development projects have been completed since 2010, including new hotels and the Kinder High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. Developers credit the Downtown Living Initiative, which created incentives for the building of residential units. But it’s more than that. As several executives note—we seem to have reached a critical mass when it comes to projects that encourage livability. Success breeds more success. Speaking of success, we’re thrilled to profile one of Downtown’s newer, more innovative theatrical companies—Rec Room Arts starting on page 3. In just a few short years, Rec Room has evolved into an important force in the Houston theater scene. Meet one of its founders, Matt Hune, and learn how he and partner Stephanie Wittles Wachs ensure a unique experience for audiences.
