Houston Downtown is one of the typical central business districts in United States; single land use, strongly depended by automobile transportation. This traditional city pattern causes huge obstacle of sustainable lifestyle.
The master plan proposes large-scale mix-used and recreational development at the north of Houston downtown in order to create a 24-hour vibrant urban environment. Mixed-used district provides over 30,000 houses for citizens who live, work, and hangout here. By introducing Transit-Oriented Development, new bus and light rail system connect houses, park, retails, malls, offices, and Amtrak station, people are easier to access anywhere by public transportation. Waterfront green corridor as City Park physically connects community parks in order to provide recreation, fresh air, and open space for public.
