About

Downtown and the central core are the heartbeat of the city and the region, and its continued health and growth is critical to the success of Houston.

This is the guiding principle behind Central Houston, founded in 1983 by downtown business leaders to ensure that the center city remains vital and progressive. For more than 30 years, supported by its membership, the organization has collaborated, conceived and implemented remarkable solutions for the complex challenges of our city. Central Houston’s focus is long term and big picture.

Today, as it has for more than three decades, Central Houston has kept its focus on the future of Houston, embracing Downtown and beyond. The organization actively seeks the ideas and voices of top business leaders and city officials to collectively visualize and facilitate the necessary factors that ensure these impactful ideas become a reality.

Our 2018 priorities focus on the image of our city, quality of life, strengthening the economic base of our city, and continued collaboration with the City, County, METRO and downtown property owners to improve our central city.
