Downtown is the largest business district in Houston, Texas USA. It has been the city’s commercial district since its founding in 1836. Downtown is home to nine Fortune 500 corporations and also a major destination for entertainment and recreation. Nine major performing arts organizations are located within the Theater District at prominent venues including Alley Theatre, Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, Jones Hall, and the Wortham Theater Center. Two major professional sports venues, Minute Maid Park and the Toyota Center, are home to the Houston Astros and Houston Rockets, respectively. Discovery Green, an urban park located on the east side of the district adjacent to the George R. Brown Convention Center, anchors the city’s convention district.
Downtown is Houston’s civic center, containing Houston City Hall and courthouses of Harris County, and a federal prison and courthouse. Downtown is also a major public transportation hub, lying at the center of the light rail system, park and ride system, and the metropolitan freeway network; the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) is headquartered in the district.
