Downtown Houston contains the headquarters of many prominent companies. There is an extensive network of pedestrian tunnels connecting the buildings there.
Most of the residential units in downtown are conversions of older buildings into modern loft spaces located near the theatre district and near Main Street in the Historic District. Downtown will be adding another 346 apartment units with the development of Marvey Finger's One Park Place.
