Over the last few years, projects at the Avenida de las Amercias have steadily transformed the area from a bland, sleepy street on the edge of downtown into a hub of pedestrian and entertainment activity. The sweeping changes to Avenida Houston and improvements to the George R. Brown Convention Center itself are creating the vibrant urban environment long dreamed of by city leaders.
The transformation of Avenida recently won several awards. One of which was the Mayor’s Proud Partner award at the Mayor’s Proud Partners Luncheon by Keep Houston Beautiful. The award was accepted by John Gonzalez, Vice President & General Manager of Convention Services for the George R. Brown.
