Downtown is the birthplace of Houston and is home to the Market Square Historic District with some of Houston’s oldest historic buildings. The construction of a ring of freeways in the 1960s and 1970s created the modern boundaries of downtown. This area includes state of art performing art facilities, major government, banking, energy interests, the George R. Brown Convention Center and University of Houston Downtown. Loft conversions in older, often vacant office/commercial buildings are adding a new and welcome residential element to downtown along with a thriving nightlife, restaurant and club scene. Downtown includes quality park space such as Discovery Green and Market Square Park that includes places for performances, dog runs and other activities. Two sports stadiums, Minute Maid Park and the Toyota Center give the downtown area additional interest.
