Downtown Brownsville

It is a dynamic period in Downtown Brownsville as we are at the cusp of an economic and cultural transformational shift. Propelled to critical mass by the state award-winning Market Square Renovation Project and Main Street Brownsville’s façade improvement projects, Downtown Brownsville is once again the hub and heart of our city.

Brownsville's plentiful historic fabric, particularly rich in our Historic Downtown District, is the foundation of our revitalization efforts .  Lauded as the second most historic city in Texas, Brownsville historicity is unmatched and we continue to work on preservation-based economic development that preserves our historic structures and honors our colorful culture, and creating spaces where people want to be.

Our vision is not only to make Downtown Brownsville a destination, but also a premier experience. We are building a diverse community of entrepreneurs that is making it happen together, that shares successes, and creates unmatched experiences. Don’t just watch our story unfold. Jump right in and flourish with us.
